“LIVE! WITH REGIS AND KELLY” LOOKS FOR “MEN OF RADIO”
TO FILL REGIS PHILBIN’S CO-HOST CHAIR
“Men of Radio Co-Host for a Day Search” Lets Viewers Nominate Favorite
Radio Personalities to Join Kelly Ripa January 24-28, 2011
After a fantastic week of “Women of Radio” co-hosts with Regis Philbin last August, “LIVE! with Regis and Kelly” is turning the tables and asking home viewers for their help in finding guest co-hosts to join Kelly Ripa January 24-28, 2011. During “LIVE’s” “Men of Radio Co-Host for a Day Search,” the “LIVE” audience is being invited to nominate their favorite local radio broadcasters to join Kelly as a guest co-host for a day.
The search is open to male radio broadcasters over the age of 18 with regularly scheduled shows of any kind, including music, sports and news, plus traffic reporters and weathercasters. After all of the nominations are in, “LIVE's” producers will narrow the field to 100 semi-finalists and give viewers the chance to weigh in online on their favorites. Once ten finalists have been selected by the show, viewers will again have their say - this time to vote on the five broadcasters who will fly to New York to act as guest co-host for a day with Kelly in January.
Viewers will get more than the chance to possibly see their favorite local radio personality on “LIVE” - everyone who submits a nomination or votes for the guest co-hosts will have the opportunity to win one of ten Krups home appliance gift packages by random drawing. All nominators and voters must be 18 years of age and residents of the 50 United States, the District of Columbia or Canada (except Quebec). Nominations can be submitted until 12 noon ET Dec. 10th, 2010. Full details are available at LiveRegisAndKelly.com.
“LIVE! with Regis and Kelly” is executive-produced by Michael Gelman, and is distributed by Disney-ABC Domestic Television. Produced by WABC-TV in New York, “LIVE! with Regis and Kelly” airs in more than 200 markets across the country.
