The staff at WSET (Lynchburg) took time out from covering news to blow up balloons, a lot of balloons.
They then stuffed them into News Director Bill Foy's office.
After seven years, yesterday was Foy's last day at the station. He's bolting the television news business for a public relations job at Virginia Tech.
Tuesday, while Foy was away for the day, almost every employee of the station helped in filling Foy's office with colored balloons.
Foy had to pop his way back into his office.
