Leslie Horton delivers comprehensive traffic coverage and community events weekdays on Global News Morning and Global News at Noon.
Leslie was born in Vancouver, graduated with a degree from the University of B.C., then attended the B.C. Institute of Technology and graduated with a diploma in Broadcast Journalism.
Her broadcast career has taken her to Terrace, B.C.; Red Deer, Alta.; Regina, Sask.; and back to Red Deer before moving to Calgary in 1995. You can find Leslie hosting traffic reports in the weekday morning and noon shows while also immersing herself in events around the community, reporting live on the fun events going on around our city.
Leslie is the visionary behind the hugely successful Morning/Month of Giving initiative, which raises money to bring Christmas cheer to Calgarians who need it. She also volunteers her time for many charities and organizations each year, as an event MC and guest speaker.
