Leah Jordan is WAFF 48's weekend anchor. She joined the team in May 2016 as a reporter. In January 2017, she was chosen to help launch the station’s new weekend morning newscasts. In July 2017, she stepped into her current role of weekend evening anchor.
Leah also reports three days a week. Her reporting at WAFF has earned her an Associated Press award from the Alabama AP Media Editors for ‘Best TV Coverage of a Planned Event.’ In Billings, Montana, where she started her television career, Leah won an E.B. Craney from the Montana Broadcasters Association for ‘Best Television Writer.’
Leah attended college at Georgia State University near her home in Atlanta, Georgia. She interned at WSB-TV, The Atlantan, and Atlanta Business Chronicle. She also served as Copy Editor for GSU’s independent student newspaper, The Signal, for three years. In 2014, Leah was one of 10 students tapped state-wide to report for Georgia News Lab — an investigative reporting initiative for select journalism students.
When she’s not working, Leah loves trying new restaurants, making new recipes (seeing a theme here?), and running (something has to balance out the love of food). Despite annual heartbreak, she also loves cheering on her Atlanta Falcons and Hawks. Leah believes everyone has a story and wants to hear yours at firstname.lastname@example.org.
