NEW ORLEANS — After two and a half years as a member of the Eyewitness Sports team, Leslie Spoon joined the highly-rated Eyewitness Morning News as the co-anchor of the 4:30 a.m. to 6 a.m. hours and as an anchor/reporter from 6 a.m. until 9 a.m.
She moves from primarily working nights and weekends with sports to getting up in the wee hours of the morning to handle news and interview assignments.
Leslie was an LHSAA all-state basketball player at Benton High School (near Bossier City) and went on to play collegiate ball at Georgia Southern University. After graduation, she realized the best way to stay involved in sports was to get into broadcasting.
Following a brief stint in public relations, Leslie was hired by KTBS, where she served as the weekend sports anchor/reporter for four years.
In 2012, Leslie traded in her flip flops for snow boots and moved to Green Bay, Wisconsin taking over as the weekend sports anchor/reporter at WFRV. In addition to her newscast responsibilities, Leslie also served as an affiliate reporter for CBS Sports Network, providing weekly Packer reports on "That Other Pregame Show". As the station's dedicated Packers reporter, Leslie covered every game, the NFL combine, and Packer NFL Hall of Fame Inductions in Canton. Leslie has also covered the Wisconsin Badgers NCAA Final Four run.
Leslie is happy to be back in the Bayou State and would love to hear from you! If you have a story idea for her you can email her at email@example.com or follow her on twitter @LeslieSpoonWWL.
