Leon Harris is a brilliant American journalist who has made a great name among the names of today’s greatest newscasters. At the age of 56, he has reached a great height of success from where he looks at all the struggles that he has done to become such a huge name in the industry. He loves his profession and is proud to be a journalist. We hope he goes a long way in the industry.

Going back to where he has come from, we come to know that he was born in Akron. His father Leon Sr. and mother Lorraine brought him up encouraging him to become what he aspired to become. He was raised along with his brothers and sisters with lots of love. Because his parents never went to his education, he went on to get a degree from Ohio University.

It was with CNN that he started his career. He got to work in world headquarters in the 1980s. Even though he had worked there as an unpaid intern, he managed to learn a lot from that internship. He then went on to become a video journalist and later became an assistant director. He took that job and oversaw and even negotiated satellite services that are used to cover special events.

Harris got to receive an Emmy award for the coverage of the 2000 presidential election, the Oklahoma City bombing and the September 11th attack. Harris felt that competition increased in CNN and he took some decisions which caused to make CNN Live Today with Daryn Kagan the last show that he had on CNN.

The works that he has done in the industry are countless. Leon even worked with ABC-7. During his work period with ABC-7, he got a local Emmy award for Best Anchor which proves how diligent he is. Then, in 2017, Leon Harris joined WRC-TV and contributed as a group member in its news team. Leon living ABC news and joining NBC4 made a great stir in the news channels.

People are curious about the personal life of Leon. They want to know whether he is married or divorced. The married lives of journalists also attract a lot of audiences. Harris met Dawn Lomax when he was in the University. She became his girlfriend for some time and decided to get married very soon. Dawn prove to be the perfect wife for Leon.

There are no talks about the couple getting divorced. They have two children; a boy and a girl. They have added a new dimension in their life. Now he lives with his wife and children in Maryland. The salary and net worth that he has today suffice for their luxurious life.
