Leeza Gibbons: I Like To Empower People

Posted: Updated:

For the past three years, Leeza Gibbons has been co-hosting a daily newsmagazine called "America Now."

But you wouldn't know it if you live in Los Angeles, New York or Chicago.  The show hasn't been airing in any of those big TV markets.

Until now.

This week, "America Now" debuted in all three of those cities and can now be seen in 80% of the country.

Leeza joins Steve Edwards and Maria Sansone on Good Day L.A.

Fun Facts About Leeza Gibbons:

  • Gibbons is the host of her own radio show, Hollywood Confidential, part of the United Stations radio syndication company.
  • She has hosted Entertainment Tonight and Extra, as well as hosting Leeza, her own NBC/syndicated talk show, which ran from June 1993 to September 2000.
  • In early 2000s Gibbons launched her mineral makeup line, Sheer Cover with Guthy-Renker.
  • On November 14, 2007, California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger announced the appointment of Gibbons to the board that oversees California's stem cell research agency. Gibbons fills a slot designated for a patient advocate for Alzheimer's as the result of her nonprofit group, Leeza's Place, which is aimed at caregivers for persons with memory disorders. Gibbons' efforts with memory disorders grew out of her own family's experience with her mother who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and died in May 2008.
