After several years of successfully co-hosting with Ryan Seacrest on 102.7 KIIS-FM (and several years prior with Rick Dees) Ellen was offered the opportunity to host her own morning show on iHeartMedia’s KOST 103.5.  

Ellen launched her morning show on KOST to deliver a “morning show with a purpose” in the most competitive morning radio market. 

Ellen is the longest continuously airing morning radio personality in the #1 radio market and also holds the distinction of being the first female to anchor a morning radio show with her solo namesake in Los Angeles radio history, thanks to the support from iHeart, their pioneering spirit, and support of women.  

In addition to her work in radio, Ellen has voiced the Grammys for 10 years as well as the Oscars and many other ABC, CBS television projects. 

Ellen is pursuing the VO of the Tonys to be the first ever EGOT of VO.  

Ellen launched an annual fundraiser for Children’s Hospital L.A on Giving Tuesday which has raised millions for CHLA over the last 8 years. 

Ellen is a Board Member at CHLA and Loyola High School. 

She was recently named iHeart Radio personality of the year and received a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame as well as the host of the TCL Chinese Theater cement handprint ceremonies.

Ellen lives in the Hollywood Hills with her husband Roy and son Calvin, who is a senior studying computer science and pursuing his Masters at Stanford University. 

Ellen enjoys hiking with her family and 2 rescued dogs, Cali and Penny. Ellens’ guilty pleasures include bingeing on true crime stories, shoe shopping, movies, wine tasting, new local restaurants, and an occasional surfing or snowboarding expedition.
