Ellen Leyva, of ABC7 Eyewitness News here in Los Angeles has been selected as midlifebachelor.com’s Woman of the Month for March 2010!

Now I have to admit that I usually do not watch ABC7 Eyewitness News at home.  I have, however, noticed Ellen Leyva on one of the big screen TVs NEXT TO the one I usually watch when I’m putting in my 45 minutes on the Elliptical Trainer at my gym.  Ellen Leyva is absolutely stunning, and has a very soft appearance about her.  In doing my research on her, I find it hard to believe that she graduated from Arizona State University back in 1986 … she looks amazing!).

Here’s the scoop on Ellen Leyva.  She grew up in Tuscon, Arizona in a bilingual home – and spent a fair amount of time in Mexico with her mother’s family.  As I mentioned, she graduated from ASU in 1986 with a degree in Broadcast Journalism – and started working first as an intern, then a writer, then a reporter at the CBS affiliate station in Phoenix.  Next she moved on to KOVR in Sacramento as a news anchor.  After just one year in Sacramento, Ellen accepted a position as a news reporter at ABC7 Eyewitness News here in LA.  She then went on to become ABC7’s health reporter, then their morning anchor – and now she is ABC7’s 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. news anchor (where I finally noticed her).

Ellen Leyva is married (rats!) to Mark Hair – who was an F-15 fighter pilot in Arizona when Ellen interviewed him.  Apparently he swept her off her feet, as they married – and have two daughters, ages 11 and 14.  Her husband has since left the military, and is now a commercial airline pilot.

Here is one video that shows Ellen Leyva in action (from back in 2012) …
