Leah Chauncey proved to be one of the most versatile managers to work at WRAL-TV. She started in June, 1981 as the business manager. Her desire to know more about the behind-the-scenes part of broadcasting led her to wear many different hats at the station.
In the mid-80s, she became a manager in the news department. She handled the resource logistics required to gather the news. Leah then became manager of local production (non-news) which included commercial and promotion material. Her depth of knowledge led her to become operations manager where she oversaw the work of the engineering department.
She was then tapped to manage the internet start-up business called “Interpath” when the internet was still in its in infancy. Her final position was TV Director of Business of Affairs.
Leah retired in January, 2015 after a very successful career at WRAL-TV.
