“I got your lead!”
It’s a boastful tone answered by drops of sarcasm and rolled eyes among residents of the WAVY Newsroom, which, in many ways, is the Fox’s den. Andy Fox is a larger than big screen image in your living rooms nearly every night. He’s the guy who’s “past perpendicular” while fighting hurricane winds on the Outer Banks. He’s the guy advocating “Justice for Jenny,” the young woman with Down Syndrome who wanted to choose her own guardians. Finally, he’s the guy who asks tough questions every day of those charged with running our local and state governments. In short, Andy Fox is on your side, and is nearly always one of the five stories to look for on WAVY News starting at 5.
1.) The Fox on tolls Andy is definitely one of the five things to look for, when he’s on toll patrol. This time, he shows how far many of you will literally go to avoid them. He dug up some new numbers today, that you’ll want to see beginning at 5.
2.) Taking too much of a toll Anita Blanton expands on a story 10 on your side broke Wednesday: Elizabeth River Crossings admitted overcharging on some vehicles. You hear from one of those drivers tonight.
3.) Winter won’t let go Hampton Roads got just a taste of what the rest of the South had shoved down its throat from nature. We may have endured a third snowstorm; but it quickly melted away. However, our southern neighbors are digging out again. Erin Kelly is at Norfolk International Airport where passengers are dealing with cancelled flights and delays in other snowed in cities. This latest storm knocked out power to 100,000 customers in North Carolina. Is there more on the way? You might be surprised when you tune in at 5.
4.) Thinking about mental health Stephanie Harris is doing a lot more tonight. She continues a series of special reports on what Virginia lawmakers are doing to help those who fall through the cracks of the current system.
5.) Gloucester raid Liz Palka is on a developing story on why two businesses were busted. She’ll have more answers by 5.
I’m still waiting to see if Andy has our lead tonight. But it looks like we’ll be starting thing off in the Super Doppler 10 Weather Center.
