Moody’s back…as animal advocate…

(photo/story from TampaBay.com) – Even while she was leading newscasts at Bay News 9, Leigh Moody was developing a track record as a self-described “crazy cat lady.”

But four months after being fired from Bright House Networks’ 24-hour cable newschannel, Moody has turned her extracurricular passion into a new job — as a social media consultant for the SPCA Tampa Bay, the local branch of the American Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

While at Bay News 9, Moody kept an unnamed blog where she talked a lot about her five cats, along with Twitter and Facebook pages (she eventually shuttered a personal Twitter page in favor of using the company’s official platforms). All the social media work she did at the newschannel developed skills allowing her to supervise the SPCA’s three Facebook pages and her relaunched blog, now called Leigh Moody’s Animal Blog.
