Leanne West has a way with words. A journalist for more than 25 years, she’s passionate about storytelling.  Her words don’t just tell – they sell. 

She’s best known for her work for almost two decades with Network Ten, where she was an award-winning reporter, presenter and producer with national programs Ten News and Sports Tonight.
But in sporting parlance, she’s a journalism all-rounder.

As a freelance journalist, Leanne’s work spans print, online, television news and current affairs, and radio. She’s written about subjects as diverse as news, sport, travel, health and adventuring. These stories (and her photographs) have reached a national audience through media giants like Fairfax Media and Fox Sports. 

Leanne sees Newsmodo as a wonderful opportunity to connect her story-telling expertise with brands eager to value-add. She gets the link between great writing and powerful, effective content marketing and brand development. 

She’s easy to work with and listens to her client’s needs. She’s proud of her reputation for clean copy and concise, accurate, informative and entertaining writing. Leanne believes the key to great journalism, is endless curiosity. There’s a story to be told in everything.

When she’s not telling stories, Leanne can usually be found running her two boys around to soccer, rugby, cricket or piano. And she’s always looking for that perfect deal to indulge her love of travel.
