Leslie Bohl is celebrating her 20th anniversary of waking up and starting the day for South Texans as anchor of “News 4 San Antonio Today” weekday mornings 4:30-7:00 on WOAI-TV, this month. You can also see her at the helm of the “News 4 San Antonio at Noon“. In addition, Leslie served as host and correspondent for lifestyle show, “San Antonio Living” for 15 years. Her reporting has greatly ranged from political elections to hurricanes and natural disasters to the Olympics. Her assignments have taken her all across the US, Mexico, and Europe. She’s interviewed presidents, A-list actors, CEOs of national companies, and visionaries. Her favorite story to tell is one of the resilience of the human spirit: ordinary people doing extraordinary things especially during times of challenge. She has been bestowed a Gracie Award for her medical reporting. We admire her positive spirit, ambition, and her willingness to always share the good news. Way to go, Leslie!
