Florida News Anchor Nate Foy Joins Fox News as a Correspondent
Who is Nate Foy? Fox News announced that the TV journalist, previously an anchor in Florida, would be a new correspondent for the cable channel.
After years covering news in local markets, Nate Foy is going national. Fox News announced in a press release on Feb. 10 that Foy would be serving as a New York-based correspondent for the channel, with this new job starting that month.
Already, Foy has notched an appearance of The Story With Martha MacCallum. “Thanks for having me on, Martha!” Foy wrote on Instagram on March 3, posting a photo of himself and MacCallum on the set of the weekday show.
Here’s more information about the new Fox News personality.
Foy got his start reporting sports news.
According to the Fox News’ press release about his hiring, Foy hails from Westborough, Mass., and earned a bachelor’s degree in broadcast journalism from the University of Miami. He landed a job as sports director for KQTV, an ABC affiliate in St. Joseph, Mo., anchoring and producing sports reports and a weekly football program.
He then became the weekday sports anchor at WZVN-TV, the ABC affiliate in Fort Myers, Fla., helming sportscasts for the 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. broadcasts and reporting on Boston Red Sox spring training, Florida Gulf Coast University athletics, and NCAA basketball.
He was a news anchor in Fort Myers until he got his Fox News job.
Most recently, Foy was a weekday and weekend news anchor at WBBH-TV, Fort Myers’ NBC station. Working in that newsroom since 2016, Foy anchored 11 a.m., 12 p.m., 3 p.m., and 4 p.m. daily newscasts and occasionally subbing for primetime anchors. During his time with WBBH, Foy covered Hurricane Irma, Hurricane Dorian, Super Bowls LII and LIV, and the COVID-19 pandemic.
Kyla Galer, another anchor at WBBH, bid Foy farewell in a Feb. 1 tweet, writing, “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. Good luck on your next move, we’ll miss you!”
Online reports of Foy’s net worth peg his fortune to be around $500,000.
