Let me state without equivocation that I love my job, and I love radio. While it is my favorite medium – and working with Tom Joyner is the best gig ever, the opportunity to spend a day as a TV sidekick has presented itself. And I’d like to do it.
“Live with Regis and Kelly” has a contest looking for the Women of Radio to spend a day as co-host with Regis Philbin for a day. But in order to make this happen, I NEED YOU! To borrow from one of J’s favorite childhood impersonations as LBJ – “I come to you tonight with a heavy heart …” – I come to you today with a light heart to ask for your votes. Each day, until July 16th, please go to the “Live with Regis and Kelly” Web site, www.LivewithRegisandKelly.com, to nominate/vote for me to join Reege for one day in August.
Why do I want to do this? I hadn’t given it a thought until my colleague, Jawn Murray, brought the contest to my attention. Now that my name has been tossed into the Internet hat, I’m going back to my Chicago roots and asking you to VOTE EARLY and VOTE OFTEN at www.LivewithRegisandKelly.com. A day on one of the nation’s most popular talk shows would give it a decided boost of flavor and introduce some of the audience members to the best show on radio, “The Tom Joyner Morning Show.”
