Leigh Spann - WFLA News Channel 8

Leigh Spann

Leigh Spann joined WFLA in September, 2007. You can catch her forecasts every weekday morning starting at 4:30am. Since so many people ask, she says she wakes up at 2am and goes to bed at 7pm! She came here from our sister station, WCBD, in Charleston, SC where she was also the morning and noon meteorologist. While at WCBD, she received the Award of Merit for South Carolina Weathercaster of the Year. Leigh also worked at WMAZ in Macon, GA.

Leigh earned the Certified Broadcast Meteorologist (CBM) designation in 2008. She also holds the National Weather Association Broadcast Seal of Approval.

Leigh graduated from the University of Georgia with a BS in Geography and a certificate of Atmospheric Science. She graduated Magna Cum Laude and was one of the first people at UGA to graduate with the Atmospheric Science certificate.

Leigh lives in Tampa with her husband (who works as a producer at WFLA), their Yorkshire terrier, Baxter, and dachshund, Emily.
