Kyle Leyenberger joined the KNWA newsroom as a general assignment reporter in September 2011. Born in Florida, Kyle moved to Northwest Arkansas just in time to start the fourth grade. He graduated from Bentonville High School, and studied print journalism at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville.
After graduating, he worked as a camera operator on KNWA Today, before a brief stint as the show's graphics operator. Kyle enjoyed creating fullscreen pictures to illustrate stories, but found a full time job closer to home.
He became a photojournalist at a Northwest Arkansas television station, where he learned to craft stories with reporters out in the field. Eventually Kyle started writing, shooting and editing stories on his own.
After reporting full-time for several months, Kyle returned to KNWA, the station that got him started in broadcast journalism, and he's glad to be back.
