Emmy Award winner and best-selling author Leeza Gibbons has taken her decades of dominance in the fields of on-camera hosting and reporting along with her passion for health advocacy to craft a unique position as a leading voice for personal growth and empowerment. Using her experiences hosting, producing and writing for shows such as Entertainment Tonight, Extra and her own talk show, LEEZA, Gibbons became an instrumental advocate for healthcare, wellness and caregiving, ultimately creating the non-profit Leeza’s Care Connection, offering free services and support to those trying to answer the question, “Now What” when someone they love gets a diagnosis of a chronic illness or disease.
Family is at the core of many of Leeza’s pursuits and it was her mother’s struggle with Alzheimer’s disease that inspired her focus on helping others to “call on their courage” and “summon their strength” during a health challenge . It is a common theme to her life.
Leeza can currently be seen as the host of the Rose Parade. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband Steven Fenton and their rescue pup, Biggie. She has three children, daughter, Leksy and sons Troy and Nate.
