Leo Katcher (October 14, 1911 - February 27, 1991) was an American reporter, screenwriter, and author. In 1956, he was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Story for The Eddy Duchin Story, but he did not win.

Katcher was born in Bayonne, New Jersey in 1911. He attended the University of Pennsylvania and New York University. He was hired by the New York Post and became City Editor of the Post in the 1930's.

After World War II, he moved to the West Coast and became the Post's West Coast correspondent. In that capacity, he helped break the story that 1952 Republican vice-presidential candidate Richard Nixon had a private fund which reimbursed him for political expenses, a crisis which culminated in the Checkers speech. Katcher had close ties to Chief Justice and former California governor Earl Warren, and wrote a biography of the jurist.

In addition to the Warren book, Katcher wrote several other books and screenplays. He died in Oceanside, California on February 27, 1991.
