WPTV Chopper Pilot Flies Into the Sunset

WPTV helicopter pilot Julie Stevens signed off from the West Palm Beach NBC affiliate this morning.

“It’s been a really tough decision but I’m going to be taking a little bit of time off to relax and spend some time with my husband, our two boys and all our crazy animals,” Stevens said on air. “I also want to thank our viewers, of course, for allowing this little English girl with the funny accent onto your TVs and into your homes everyday. I will miss you all.”

Stevens had been flying Chopper 5 for WPTV since 2003.
