Nate Foy Leaves NBC2

His early career was in Missouri, where he was the sports director at St. Joseph’s KQTV for less than a year. He moved back to Florida in 2016, and has been there ever since.

He’s done major coverage of important events, including the hurricanes Dorian and Irma and the ongoing pandemic. Over time, his broadcasts became a staple for NBC2 viewers.
It’s a sad day at @NBC2 – Nate’s last day!
You spend a lot of time with your co-anchor in this job, so it helps when you really enjoy working with them! But it also makes goodbyes more bittersweet.
