Kelly Ripa was hired to replace Kathie Lee Gifford on the morning show known as Regis & Kathie Lee, from 1988 to 2000. When her contract was up, Kathie Lee Gifford decided to leave the show and focus on completing a CD album and performing live theater. This would leave a void, temporarily to be filled by different people co-hosing with Regis Philbin. For the next year, the show would be called Live With Regis.
Live With Kelly & Michael considered as one of the greates Tv Shows of all times.
