Leeza Gibbons

Award-winning personality Leeza Gibbons co-hosts the successful nationally syndicated television show, AMERICA NOW, which is currently in its fourth season. Gibbons and co-host Bill Rancic, along with show experts, provide audiences across the country with valuable information and tips, advice and solutions to problems that are important to their daily lives. As co-host, Gibbons takes a look at topics that cover personal finance, health and fitness, food, home improvement, style and fashion, pets and technology, as well as putting the latest products to the test to see if they live up to their claims.

Already one of the most recognizable faces in pop culture, this year Gibbons added to her public profile when she earned a Daytime Emmy® award for Outstanding Host in a Lifestyle/Travel Program for My Generation (on PBS stations). She also made the New York Times best seller list with her book Take Two.

Gibbons burst onto the national scene as an anchor and reporter for ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT and later became host and executive producer of her own daytime talk show LEEZA, which debuted in 1994 and aired nationally through 2000. Receiving nominations for both Outstanding Talk Show and Outstanding Talk Show Host every year it was eligible, LEEZA garnered 27 Daytime Emmy Nominations, winning three.

Gibbons has also undertaken an extraordinary array of entrepreneurial, charitable and advocacy endeavors. With her never-ending creativity and a mind for business, Leeza formed LEEZA GIBBONS ENTERPRISES (LGE) in 1994, and since then she has produced and developed projects, partnerships and products that reflect her passions and concerns. For almost 10 years she has been the face and force behind one of the most successful direct-response brands of all time with her Sheer Cover makeup line that empowers women to unlock their confidence by looking their best.

One of the greatest gifts in Gibbon's life has been the opportunity to honor her mother's legacy and her family's journey through her mother's Alzheimer's disease.  In 2002, she created The Leeza Gibbons Memory Foundation and its signature programs Leeza's Place and Leeza's Cure Connection, which offer free services for family caregivers.  Her health advocacy work is part of Gibbon's passionate and purposeful life, which includes an appointment by Governor Schwarzenegger to serve on the CIRM (stem cell) board for the state of California.

While Gibbons has three decades in front of the camera, and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, she is most proud of being mom to Lexi, Troy and Nathan and wife of Steven.
