You can catch Danielle Leigh anchoring the weekends on KING and KONG, and reporting during the week. She also anchors for NWCN.

Prior to coming to Seattle, Danielle was a Washington D.C. based correspondent for NBC News Channel, covering Congress and the Supreme Court.

She has also specialized in breaking news, reporting on major events such as the 2012 Presidential election, Super Storm Sandy, the tragic shootings in Newtown, CT., the Asiana plane crash in San Francisco, The George Zimmerman trial, the Navy Yard shootings, and the birth of the royal baby in London.

While working at KCRA 3 News in Sacramento, Danielle developed a reputation for uncovering exclusive enterprise stories. Her reports led to a state investigation into a Sacramento produce company, a policy change for ride operators at the California State Fair, and exposed conflicts at a school district police department that became the focus of a Grand Jury investigation.

Danielle loves the beauty and culture Seattle and the Pacific Northwest has to offer.

When she isn't working, Danielle loves traveling, trying out new restaurants, exploring the outdoors, and relaxing anywhere sunny with a good beach or a boat.

Danielle also regularly volunteers in the community supporting a variety of homeless outreach and health initiatives.
