Scott Leamon Quitting WSLS for Police Department Job

WSLS reporter Scott Leamon starts his new role as a spokesman for the Roanoke Police Department Monday.

“You spend a lot of hours covering the news, so I got to a lot of tee ball games in time for the last inning,” Leamon told the Roanoke Times. “This new job allots more time for the family, but there is a lot of work involved, too. I’m ready to work.”

Leamon, whose last day at the Roanoke NBC affiliate is today, told viewers on his facebook page, “Thank you for allowing me into your homes and hearts. And any time you feel like you can’t do something, any time you feel like your back is against the wall, any time you feel like you just might be down for the count…Do what I tell the people who me well to do. Think: “Man. If that knucklehead Scott Leamon can do it, then I can too!”

Leamon has been a reporter at WSLS for ten years.
