Virginia 12th, produced by NowThis, is the story of Chris Hurst, who became the youngest local news anchor in America at the age of 22 when he manned the news desk at Roanoke, Virginia’s WDBJ-7. Hurst was suddenly and tragically thrust into the limelight in 2015 when his fiancée and fellow reporter Alison Parker and their colleague, Adam Ward, were murdered during a live broadcast of the morning news. The film follows Hurst after he quits journalism and enters the world of politics by running for state delegate in Virginia’s deeply-divided 12th House District. Discussion with subject Chris Hurst, director Tim Johnson, and U.S. House of Representatives candidate Leslie Cockburn, moderated by Athan Stephanopoulos (NowThis)
