| Character Information
Leeza Gibbons is an American television talk show host.
Leeza Gibbons co-hosted the Channel 6 coverage of the Costington's Thanksgiving Day parade, along with Kent Brockman. As each float passed their reviewing stand, she and Brockman introduced it by telling the viewers about it as it went by. Their on-screen working relationship was not always smooth, but the problem seemed to lie more with Brockman than it did with Gibbons. When one float went by, Brockman asked Gibbons if she liked gingerbread. She replied "No, not really", but Brockman continued on with his prepared introduction as though she had said she did: "Then you'll love this next float! It's an all-gingerbread desk set."
Gibbons' and Brockman's working relationship ended abruptly, owing to Mr. Burns's shenanigans. Later in the parade, a fish guts prank played by Burns attracted a swarm of gulls, which caused the attendees to flee in panic, which in turn led to the Rusty the Clown parade balloon crashing into the bleachers where the reviewing stand was located. Brockman stayed in the stand, but Gibbons apparently fled along with everyone else, as she was nowhere to be seen.
