Leah Pezzetti joins the 13 Action News team as a reporter and weekend forecaster.
She is a one-woman-band who has a passion for shooting, writing and editing her own stories. She discovered this passion at The National Press Photographer Association's (NPPA) News Video Workshop, which she attended two times. Leah graduated from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo with a degree in Broadcast Journalism. She is currently working on a Master's in Meteorology from Mississippi State University.
Leah was born and raised in Sacramento, California, before moving to San Luis Obispo for college. She then moved to Bakersfield, California, to report and forecast at the ABC affiliate. She received an Emmy for a piece she did in her first year as a professional journalist. She also placed in NPPA's Quarterly Clip Contest for that same story.
When she's not working or doing schoolwork, Leah enjoys taking ballet classes, singing or exploring the Las Vegas area. She also adopted a kitten when she moved to Las Vegas and named him Secret Agent Mittens, or S.A.M. for short.
