Leslie Gaydos is the anchor of the morning hours of NECN Weekend, and a feature reporter weekdays on NECN Morning

In October 2009, Gaydos and a team from NECN won a national Edward R. Murrow Award for "The Forgotten Fire," a half-hour documentary that she wrote and co-produced in 2008. The documentary shed light on the extensive code violations in a Massachusetts office building where five people were killed trying to escape a fire in 2000. The story also won a regional Associated Press Award for best documentary. 

In addition, "The Forgotten Fire" was credited with helping to pass stalled legislation in Massachusetts that closed a loophole in state sprinkler laws and regulations. 

Gaydos also contributed to a collection of in-depth reports that won NECN the Alfred I. DuPont-Columbia University Broadcast Journalism Award. She is a Gabriel Award winner, an Edward R. Murrow Regional Award winner, an Associated Press Award winner and was also honored by the American Women in Radio and Television with a Gracie Award. 

Gaydos began her career in television as a reporter and anchor at WTRF-TV in Wheeling, West Virginia. 

She is a native of the Pittsburgh, PA area, and holds a degree in broadcast journalism from Boston University. She and her husband live in the suburbs west of Boston and have three children.
