Leigh Isaacson

Leigh Isaacson is excited to trade in the snow for the heat and to call New Orleans home.

She grew up in Boston, MA, and she was a general assignment reporter for WSYR-TV in Syracuse, NY for two years before joining Fox 8.

Up north, Leigh covered stories such as the effects of Super Storm Sandy, the Bernie Fine investigation, and the deadly Megabus crash. She investigated middle school science class safety, taxi scams and contractor fraud in the Syracuse area.

Leigh also worked in South West Africa for One Africa Television News in Namibia in 2009. In the desert, she covered economic stories pertinent to the post-Apartheid state and produced a segment on the national assembly elections.

She graduated Magna Cum Laude from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University in 2011. Go Orange!
