I am very sorry to read this news. I am not the least bit surprised., Leon is a good man and a good reporter. I have very little doubt this is about money. I suspect he will emerge as a PR guy for some local government agency, and all the better for it, along with his lovely wife, and I hope by now, kids. I am ashamed to say WOOD TV had relegated him to "Black News". You all know what that means.

The funniest thing I ever saw on TV, was an opening shot at 6. The producer told Leon in the field to stand to standby, and he began a mike check. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10. Bill Stephan's weather tease was next, and he said, "Whatdaya know,, Leon can count.


Please support Illinois Senator Tammy Duckworth for Vice President.

Definitely seems to be a trend lately.

So Leon is going to work for Spectrum Health in their communications department. He just announced it as the 6:00 pm newscast was ending.
