Leaving the TV News Biz


In a staff meeting Tuesday, WSET (Lynchburg) General Manager Randy Smith announced to staff that News Director Bill Foy will be leaving the station for a new job at Virginia Tech. 

Foy is leaving TV news and will become the Director of Communications at Virginia Tech.

"Bill is the consummate professional. He and I have worked together since 1992 and he is one of the most experienced and highly regarded news professionals in the Commonwealth, if not the industry. Bill is one of a very small group of people in whom I have blind trust. I will miss him tremendously," Smith said of Foy.

Main Anchor Len Stevens will be the station's interim news director until further notice.

Foy leaves the station at the end of next month.
