McLeod has written numerous articles on radio pioneers and the history of early radio. Her articles have appeared in such publications as Nostalgia Digest, Journal of the Radio Historical Association of Colorado, and Radio Recall. She has contributed to (among others) Exploring Cultural History: Living Through the Great Depression and Encyclopedia of Radio. McLeod has also written liner notes for Radio Archives' Radio Legends: Matinee with Bob and Ray and other CD collections. McLeod made much of The Original Amos ’n’ Andy: Freeman Gosden, Charles Correll and the 1928–1943 Radio Serial available on the internet prior to its 2005 publication. A biography of radio's first major stars that examines their long-term impact on the medium, the book refutes frequent condemnations of the radio and television series. Between 1997 and 2006 she contributed over 800 scripts to the daily CBS Radio Network program "Sound*Bytes."
