7News’ own Emily Goodman was in attendance to offer a prayer for the media.
“I did pray for the media to be fair and honest and true in what they speak because I feel like we have a platform and we are able to give the people the truth that we speak, and I think we do a good job of that here at 7news,” said Goodman.
