Blair Ledet of Houston, Texas is elated to join Fox 2 as a reporter in the Gateway City!

She comes to St. Louis from Hattiesburg Mississippi’s WDAM News 7 Sunrise team. During her time there, she was a morning co-anchor and multimedia journalist with a franchise highlighting the notable people, places, and acts of kindness in the viewing area.

Her career in Broadcast Journalism began at WDAM’s sister station, KTRE in East Texas, as a multimedia journalist. She learned the ropes reporting, anchoring, and producing while gaining an appreciation for the simplistic beauty of the south. She is proud of her work helping East Texans access healthcare after insurance changes left thousands without options.

She began her journey as a reporter at Sam Houston State University’s news station, KSHU-TV 7. There, she spent much time learning about studio production, but she soon decided she’d rather be at the scene reporting! Blair then interned at KRIV Fox 26 News, shadowing reporters throughout their hectic days. The excitement and opportunities for creativity drove her to pursue a reporter career.

Blair is eager to connect with people in the St.Louis area from all walks of life and tells their stories. During her spare time, she enjoys mentoring teenage girls. She also sings, plays piano, and shamelessly watches reality TV. Blair is also a die-hard Beyonce fan!

She is passionate about having authentic experiences and connection with people in the places she settles down. If you have a story idea or a unique St.Louis treasure you think she should check out, send her an email at
