Leanne Shinkle is a multimedia journalist at WSAZ.

Leanne joined the WSAZ News Team in June of 2018 as a multimedia journalist in Charleston.

Leanne studied broadcast journalism at the Reed College of Media at West Virginia University. During her four years at WVU, she worked in production at the student radio station, wrote for 100 Days in Appalachia, and reported on crime and courts for the Emmy Award Winning WVU News.

During her summers she interned in Cincinnati where she was born and raised. She spent time as a video production intern for a company called Zoozler. When Leanne wasn’t interning, she spent her time brushing up on her Spanish. She studied abroad in Costa Rica and again in Spain.

When Leanne is home in Cincinnati she enjoys spending her free time with her family, especially her nephews. However, four years in the mountain state wasn’t enough and she is happy to call Charleston her new home.
