Ellyn Felton, KCRG-TV9 Nickelodeon joined schools across the nation today with their own walkout.

The television station went off air from 10 a.m. to 10:17 a.m.

"In support of kids leading the way today, Nickelodeon will be off the air until 17 minutes past the hour," the channel said.

The 17 minutes off air was to honor the 17 students and faculty members killed a month ago in Parkland, Florida during a school shooting.
