Leah Fleming



Leah Fleming’s passion for local public radio journalism and exciting news partnerships is what brings her to Macon. She joined GPB in 2013 following six years at WLRN-Miami Herald News, in Miami, where she served as a reporter and All Things Considered anchor before being named deputy news director.

Prior to her time in South Florida, Leah worked as Morning Edition host/reporter at WABE Public Radio in Atlanta, Georgia. There she was acknowledged for her work including an award from the National Association of Black Journalists for her interview with professional boxer Laila Ali. Leah fell in love with the art of radio during a summer internship in college. Since then she has reported, produced and anchored news programs at several stations, including WAMC Northeast Public Radio in Albany, New York, and WJCT Public Broadcasting in Jacksonville, Florida.
