ÂWe are thrilled to bring a talent of Leeza's stature to the next cover of REAL Magazine,Â said Tony Golden, CEO, Revue Media, Inc. ÂShe is a perfect fit for the personal and interactive nature of our publication, and the fact that America already loves her, adds an amazing opportunity for Leeza to introduce our readers to Leeza at Night, her new daily, 5-hour music program debuting November 8, 2004.Â
Leeza Gibbons is one of the broadcast industryÂs most respected and recognized professionals. Gibbons has been entering AmericaÂs living rooms for over a decade as an anchor for TVÂs ÂEntertainment TonightÂ and as host and managing editor of the TV newsmagazine ÂExtra.Â Gibbons also hosted and executive produced her own daytime talk show, LEEZA, which ran for seven seasons and earned her 27 Daytime Emmy Nominations, with three wins and one of HollywoodÂs highest honors, a star on the prestigious Hollywood Walk of Fame.
In addition to her many accolades, Gibbons is listed in ÂWhoÂs Who in AmericaÂ and ÂWhoÂs Who in Business and Professional WomenÂ and was recently named one of the ÂInternational Entrepreneurial Women of the Year.Â Gibbons currently hosts the nationally syndicated radio program ÂHollywood ConfidentialÂ and Lifetime TVÂs news magazine, ÂWhat Should You Do?Â Furthermore, Leeza is the founder and board chair of the non-profit organization, The Leeza Gibbons Memory Foundation, which is dedicated to those diagnosed with memory disorders and their caregivers.
ÂLeeza is a great example of the kind of woman REAL Magazine is written for,Â says the magazineÂs EIC, Mary Monroe. ÂSheÂs intelligent, passionate and makes a palpable difference in peopleÂs lives via her various charities and other philanthropic activities.Â
REAL Magazine goes beyond the limitations of many of todayÂs womenÂs magazines. ÂToo many of todayÂs magazines take a superficial approach and donÂt explore the full depth and breadth of real womenÂs daily livesÂthe challenges and triumphs, fears and hopes, goals and dreams,Â says Monroe. ÂWe give more in-depth, intimate and personalized perspectives and insights. We donÂt really think of REAL as a magazine--itÂs more of a guide to how women think, feel, work, play and live.Â
In the November issue, Gibbons speaks with REAL about her charities, family and new radio talk show, sharing her unique take on entertainment news and the trends shaping American culture today.
The REAL reader is a powerful force in the market and in the world today: sheÂs a proven decision maker, influencer and upscale consumer. SheÂs intelligent, independent and informed Â and sheÂll look to REAL for new ideas, motivation, guidance and support to reach her goals and make the choices that are best for her!
