WDBJ, channel 7, is a CBS- affiliated television station located in Roanoke, Virginia, United States. WDBJ is owned by Gray Television, and maintains studio facilities on Hershberger Road in northwest Roanoke; its transmitter is located on Poor Mountain in Roanoke County.

WDBJ became the center of international media attention on August 26, 2015, when two of its employees, reporter Alison Parker and photojournalist Adam Ward, were shot dead while on live television. The gunman was later identified by police as former WDBJ reporter Vester Lee Flanagan II, who was fired from the station two years earlier and died from self-inflicted gunshot wounds five hours after the shooting.
