How to send us birthdays

We must get birthday information five business days before the birthday in order for us to include them on the broadcast. Because of the volume of requests, we accept birthday announcements with PHOTOS ONLY and for people who live in the WDBJ7 viewing area.

Please include the name, age and hometown of the person having the birthday. Some people are sensitive about their age, so that can be left out--but we definitely need the name and hometown.

You can Email birthday information to or mail it to:

Mornin' Birthdays
2807 Hershberger Rd., Roanoke, VA  24017


We prefer that you email us your photos as jpeg attachments to your birthday announcement.  If you mail your picture and want it returned to you, enclose a self-addressed, stamped envelope. Please do not send us irreplaceable heirloom photos through the mail.  We cannot be responsible for lost photos.  We cannot use photos that are professionally done without permission.
