Gene Lavanchy

Nominated for: BEST News Anchor

Born and raised in Massachusetts, Gene Lavanchy is one of the most recognizable anchors in Boston. He was a vital part of the FOX25 Morning News launch in 2003 and co-hosts the show. Gene brings the perfect blend of news experience and wit to lead the show's spontaneous format. He's used to delivering serious news one moment and moving to a comedic live in-studio interview the next.

Gene has interviewed countless newsmakers, celebrities and everyday citizens who do extraordinary things. He says his favorite part of co-hosting would have to be the unscripted moments of the show---when the anchors are not tied to a teleprompter and no one knows what will happen next. Since its start in 2003, FOX25 Morning News fans have made the early mix of news, weather, traffic, opinions and entertainment the fastest growing newscast in New England.

Before joining FOX25 Morning News, Gene spent the last ten years as a sports director and lead sports anchor in Boston. He also hosted a popular Sunday night sports wrap-up show.

Previously, Gene held sport anchor positions at WLNE-TV in Providence, Rhode Island and WBBH-TV in Fort Myers, Florida. He formerly served as host of WSBK-TV's Boston Bruins telecasts. Gene is an Emerson College graduate and grew up in Walpole, Massachusetts where he currently lives with his wife, Anne Marie, and their four children.

Gene is a proud citizen of Walpole and active member of the community. He is a board member of the Friends of Walpole Community Athletic Complex, a group that has worked tirelessly to raise funds and build new fields at Walpole High School and make improvements at recreational sports fields throughout the city.

Gene has served as a spokesperson for the Massachusetts Down Syndrome Congress, The Buddy Walk and The Independence 5k Walk and Run which supports programs for adults and children with developmental disabilities in more than 110 communities across the Bay State.

He was named "Person of the Year" in 2012 by the Friends of St. Patrick organization for his community work in Walpole.
