An award winning reporter, Leon has covered several major stories during his career.

Leon also covered the Godfather of Soul, James Browns' legal troubles. Leon won a Georgia Association of Broadcasters award for his story about the state of Georgia not requiring daycares to carry liability insurance in order to be licensed. The story helped change that states daycare insurance laws. Leon has also flown with the Blue Angels, the Navy's aerobatic flying team.

Television news runs in Leon's family. His brother is Len Cannon, former Dateline NBC correspondent.

When Leon's not spending time with his wife Denise and two boys, Alexander and Cedric, you can catch him in the gym or working a crossword puzzle.
