HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) -- To the wonderful people of the Shenandoah Valley,

I have decided to leave WHSV to continue my career as a sports anchor and reporter at WCIV in Charleston, SC.

Today, January 15th is my last day at WHSV.

When I first moved to Harrisonburg in August of 2010, I knew one person living within 200 miles of my new home. Oh, how quickly that changed! From literally my first day on the job, the coaches, players and fans of this wonderful area made me feel welcome and at home. And it didn’t take long before I considered The Valley my home!

Three and a half years later, the time has come to move on and start the next chapter in my life.

I cannot put in to words how much my time here has meant to me both professionally and personally. From the Endzone, to a night at the Cloverdome or the Diamond Club, to the Poultry Road Rivalry, to high school sports and all things JMU, the memories of this job will last a lifetime.

To the coaches, players, fans and scorekeepers across the area, thank you for letting me share a small part of what you do. To anyone who has called in a score, said hello at a game, or simply watched our local sports coverage on WHSV over the past few years: thank you! It’s been a privilege to do this job.

From day one on the job with Damon Dillman, to working with the ever-so-unique J.J. Davis, to my time with Brooks Wagler and most recently Andy Rives, I’ve worked with some exceptional people at WHSV. Without their tireless efforts and the work of so many people in the building here on Main Street, I wouldn’t have been able to do what I do. Thank you!

This community is special and I will always be grateful for the chance to play my small role within such a close-knit area. Thank you for inviting me in to your homes and letting me be part of your local sports coverage. It means more to me than words can say!

With great gratitude,
Daren Stoltzfus
