Leeza Gibbons          

Emmy-Nominated Journalist & Host; Alzheimer's Advocate; Winner of "Celebrity Apprentice"

Leeza Gibbons is one of the most well‐known pop‐culture icons on the air. In addition to her impressive background in the field of entertainment and news media, Gibbons is an instrumental advocate for healthcare, wellness, and caregiving. She is also a wife, mother, businesswoman, Emmy Award-winner, and a New York Times bestselling author.

The spectrum of Gibbons’s career in entertainment and news media is diverse and impressive. Her on‐camera hosting dominance in the entertainment‐news and talk‐show arenas, ranges from the most popular entertainment news show in history, "Entertainment Tonight," to her award‐winning daytime talk show, "Leeza," the latter of which aired from 1993 to 2000.

In 2013, Gibbons published her first NY Times Bestseller, "Take 2," a personal growth guide designed to help people recreate themselves and hit the reset button on their lives.

Later that year, Gibbons won the 2013 Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Talk Show Host for the PBS show "My Generation."

In the spring of 2015, Gibbons was crowned the winner of NBC’s "Celebrity Apprentice." Having raised over $700,000 for her charity, Leeza's Care Connection, Gibbons became the second woman ever to win the long-standing competition show. The season Gibbons was featured on had the highest ratings the show had had in five years.

Recognized as a social entrepreneur, Gibbons has become one of the leading voices for issues facing family caregivers. When her mother and grandmother were struggling with Alzheimer’s disease, she created what she wished she and her family had, starting the Leeza Gibbons Memory Foundation. Her training as a journalist united with her compassion and business savvy when she opened the foundation’s signature programs Leeza’s Place and Leeza’s Care Connection, offering free services for family caregivers encouraging them to call on their courage and summon their strength for the long journey ahead.

Over the years, Gibbons has become known as a trusted friend, valued confidante, and source of inspiration and information, empowering women to show up for their lives with confidence and pride. Whether it’s her scrapbook line honoring the value of memories, her jewelry collection to symbolize transformation, or her cosmetic products to reveal inner and outer beauty, Gibbons develops programs and products to help women claim their strength and rewrite the story of their lives.

Gibbons uplifts, empowers, and motivates audiences and viewers to get more out of life and business.
