      Len Stevens

      Len Stevens began bringing you the news in the Heart of Virginia in January of 2002. And he fell in love with the area, immediately.{} Central Virginia is now his home. {}He loves so many aspects of life here: the weather, the attractions, the people.{} This is a great area in which to raise a family. In August of 2010, Len and his wife Melissa got married in Lynchburg.{} Since then, the family has grown.{} In December of 2013, Melissa gave birth to Levi.{} (They think he was the cutest baby ever!){} Olivia was born in 2003. {}(They think Livi is the best big sister EVER!){} Add in Scooby, the 70-pound Chihuahua mix. (No joke.{} A Chihuahua.{} DNA tested.{} Proof right here.){}{}

      Len has received many accolades, including an Associated Press award for a series on children and smoke detectors. He's been recognized as media person of the year by Central Virginia Crime Stoppers and the Lynchburg Police Department. He was also chosen to go to Sri Lanka to cover the Asian Tsunami and help organize relief efforts. The experience changed his life. The Heart of Virginia Tsunami Lifeline adopted a Sri Lankan village and put the people there back to work, by raising several thousand dollars and buying boats and nets for the fishing community.

      That's all very humbling to him, but Len says the most important part of his job is keeping you informed. It's something he takes very seriously and hopes to continue for a very long time.

      In 2015, Len left the anchor desk, to become WSET's News Director.{} He's still at the station, working hard.{} You just won't see him on the air as much.{} But the move has been a good one for Len and his family - and he is humbled by the many notes and calls to the newsroom from people telling him they miss seeing him on their favorite newscasts.{} Still, Len is confident he is leading the best news team in the market!
