Rick Leventhal currently serves as New York-based senior correspondent for Fox News Channel (FNC). He joined the network as a correspondent in 1997.
Most recently, in August of 2015, Leventhal provided live coverage of the shooting of WDBJ-TV reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward live on air. He also contributed to the special FOX News Reporting: Timeline of Hurricane Katrina - 10th Anniversary, which took a look back at the damaging storm that centered in the Gulf Coast in 2005.
In June 2015, he reported on the manhunt for the two prisoners who escaped the Clinton Correction Facility in Dannemore, NY. During 2014, he reported on the Israel/Gaza conflict from the Israeli border, the Fort Hood base shooting in Washington D.C., as well as contributed to FNC's 2014 New Year's Eve special, All-American New Year, live from New York City.
