Leesa Mitchell - Derby City Diva - Weekdays at 10a - 3p
My name is Leesa Mitchell and I am thrilled to be part of the legendary WAKY! A native of Peoria IL., my family landed in Louisville when I was ten. Even though I like to travel and lived briefly in Chicago, Louisville is my "heartland."How long have I been floating on the Louisville area airwaves? Nearly twenty five years—maybe you caught me doing midday’s or as co-host of a few top rated morning shows. As the Derby City Diva, I also perform as a professional emcee/host and DJ for special events, fundraisers, galas, parties, weddings and night club events. Remember me for your next event. I’m WAKY!
The eclectic Original Highlands area of Louisville is where I spend my time walking around Cherokee Park with Zena & Willie, enjoying good music, good friends, good wine and good food. It is my belief that we were put here to help each other and I try to make a difference in the world by helping raise awareness for Shelter Animal adoption and the local human trafficking task-force, Rescue & Restore.
