NEW YORK (AP) – Lisa Ling, National Geographic Channel correspondent and former co-host of “The View,” got engaged to Paul Song, a Chicago-based doctor, over the holidays.

Ling and Song plan to marry later this year in Los Angeles, Chris Albert, a representative for the National Geographic Channel, said in an e-mail to The Associated Press on Wednesday.

The 41-year-old Song, an oncologist, popped the question to Ling, 33, alongside their families at a Chicago restaurant, Albert said.

Ling, who is also a correspondent for Oprah Winfrey’s talk show, ended her engagement to entrepreneur Philip Levine in October 2005. She left ABC’s “The View” in 2002 after three years, and went on to host National Geographic’s “Ultimate Explorer.”
