Len Stevens lives in the greater Lynchburg area with his wife, Melissa, his daughter Olivia, his son, Levi, and the family greeter, Scooby. Len has covered news in Central Virginia since 2002.
Len has covered many major stories in his time in Central Virginia. He reported live from Virginia Tech in the wake of the mass shootings there, traveled to Sri Lanka with Gleaning For The World after the devastating tsunami in 2004, and won an Associated Press Broadcasters’ award for a series on children and smoke alarms. He has covered numerous politicians’ visits to the area, including then-Presidential candidates Barack Obama and Senator John McCain. He has served and volunteered his time for numerous organizations, including the United Way of Central Virginia, the Muscular Dystrophy Association, the Children’s Miracle Network, and Big Brothers/Big Sisters in Lynchburg.
Originally from Wisconsin, he is proud to call Virginia home. Len likes playing the drums – and jamming with Melissa, who was a popular singer in the area before giving it up to bring Levi into the world. He also likes documentaries, is fascinated by science and scientific exploration (He’d love to travel to outer space someday.), and is a bit of a political junkie. He loves a good book or movie. Most of all, though, he LOVES being a dad. Send him your tips at LStevens@wfxrtv.com
