Leah Uko is a Southern California native: raised in Palmdale and Chatsworth. She dodged figurative gang and drug bullets, went to UC Riverside, paid her dues in Texas, Nebraska, Arkansas and Georgia, then landed a gig at Fox 11 KTTV in Los Angeles. It's been a rollercoaster! In this episode, Leah explains how getting fired from two jobs didn't break her but helped build her, the moment she decided to wear her hair natural on the air, and why she's in a 12-step program for food addiction.
