On Foy’s last day at the Lynchburg-Roanoke, VA, ABC affiliate, the newsroom filled his office with balloons. “We as a team worked harder on that than any about other project over the past three years,” said 6:00 p.m. anchor Len Stevens on the 5:00 p.m. news. “That’s not true!” objected anchor Danner Evans.
Foy left the station for a job with Virginia Tech while Stevens was named interim news director.
As well as doing a story about the deed again at 11:00 p.m., the station also posted a time-lapse of the seven hours of work they put in to its facebook page.
