Danielle Leigh
Danielle Leigh is an Emmy-award winning investigative reporter who joined the Eyewitness News Team in August 2017.

Her reporting on government corruption and mismanagement has led to new laws and policy changes. She's also helped viewers tricked by unscrupulous business practices recoup thousands of dollars.

Prior to joining Eyewitness News, Danielle worked as a consumer investigative reporter at KING5 in Seattle. While there, her reporting exposed a landlord violating fair housing laws, uncovered safety concerns within Seattle's vehicle-for-hire inspection process, caused the state to alter a confusing system of toll bills, and achieved policy changes in a federal rural housing program offered by the USDA to prevent county government from taking advantage of participants through unfair fees.

Danielle strongly believes in supporting her community. She has worked to increase awareness about diabetes, helped raise money for uncompensated care for children experiencing debilitating illnesses and served on the board for Runway to Freedom, an organization supporting domestic violence victims.

In her free time, Danielle loves traveling, trying new restaurants, enjoying live music, snowboarding, relaxing beach side and cuddling up with her dogs, Sasha and Diego.
