Appalachia Health News Reporter

June Leffler is West Virginia Public Broadcasting's health reporter. She grew up in Louisville, KY.

June spent three years as a public radio reporter in rural Alaska. She ran a one-woman newsroom at KSTK in Wrangell, Alaska, while also contributing to Alaska Public Media and stations throughout Southeast Alaska. She has won excellence in journalism awards from the Alaska Broadcasting Association and the Alaska Press Club.

Before moving to Alaska, June interned at the Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting.

June grew up making DIY zines after finding a stash of her mom's publications in the basement. She spent her whole adolescence and early adult life making zines. The Kentucky Foundation for Women awarded her two grants to produce the Louisville based youth arts zine, Goodwill Zine, which ran from 2009 to 2012.

She graduated from the University of Louisville and then received a Masters in Journalism from Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism.
