Were you missing you some Kathie Lee Gifford, chock full of all of her screams and stories about her kids, Cody and Cassidy? Well, you are in luck, as Regis' former side-kick is back on morning television! KLG has snagged a spot on the Today show's 10 o'clock hour, alongside her good pal Hode Kotb.
“It’s going to be a new experience because this time it’s with a girlfriend,” she said of co-hosting with an all-female group, that also includes Natalie Morales and Ann Curry. “Regis was like a bad little brother all those years.”
Today show executive producer, Jim Bell, announced the news this morning, giving Kathie Lee a very warm welcome to the family.
“I am excited to welcome Kathie Lee to TODAY. She is a morning television icon and is on a short list of personalities known by her first name alone. We are looking forward to her signature warmth and sense of humor in the fourth hour. Her addition to the TODAY family makes us stronger than ever, and she and Hoda will continue the TODAY tradition of smart, topical and fun morning television.”
Kathie Lee's first airdate is Monday, April 7.
