Leeza Gibbons: Every time Hollywood thinks they’ve figured her out, she cleverly moves another step up the ladder and successfully places another title among her many achievements. It’s Leeza Gibbons passion and drive combined with her wit and wisdom that has enabled her to become one of the most respected and recognized professionals in the broadcast industry.
From television news journalist and host, to radio personality, producer, businesswoman, mother and wife, Gibbons has been entering America’s living rooms for over 20 years. As the Executive Consulting Managing Editor and host of the successful daily newsmagazine, “Extra,” Gibbons continues to be committed to informing viewers on everything from entertainment news and real-life stories to hard-core politics moving and shaping American culture today.
While she would nationally burst on the scene as an anchor/reporter on Paramount’s “Entertainment Tonight,” it wouldn’t be until hosting her own daytime talker, “Leeza,” that audiences would see Gibbons’ determination to get outside of the box and become a household name while highlighting her intelligence, sensitivity and compassion. Gibbons put her business savvy into play and served as Executive Producer of “Leeza”. Receiving nominations for Outstanding Talk Show Host every year it was eligible, “Leeza” would garner 27 Daytime Emmy Nominations, winning three. It was during the series run that Gibbons’ impact on television would be awarded with one of Hollywood’s highest honors: a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
With her never-ending entrepreneurial creativity and a mind for business-building to develop and produce the kind of projects that reflect her interests and concerns.
Taking her show-biz insight to the radio airwaves, Gibbons hosts the nationally syndicated radio program, “Hollywood Confidential,” which is featured on over 125 radio stations across the country. The three-hour show not only features today’s chart-topping hits, but takes an inside look at TV, film, fashion and trends. The show has been nominated for the Billboard/Airplay Monitor for Network/Syndicated Program of the Year. .
