Morning favorite Live with Regis and Kelly will celebrate a landmark milestone this fall, as the top-rated talk show celebrates its 20th season on the air in national syndication. To mark this remarkable broadcasting achievement, Live with Regis and Kelly is pulling out all the stops with a two-week celebration that kicks off on Monday, September 3, 2007. The festivities will culminate on Friday, September 14, when hosts Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa host a full hour showcasing Live's most memorable moments, including special guest Kathie Lee Gifford.
In addition, Live with Regis and Kelly is teaming up with the Chrysler brand for one of its biggest giveaways to date: "Live's 20th Anniversary Flashback Trivia A Go-Go." From August 20th-31st, daily "Flashback Moments" on the show and on the Live with Regis and Kelly website will set-up this limited edition of the show's popular Travel Trivia segment. Then for 20 days at the start of Live with Regis and Kelly's landmark 20th season, one lucky viewer per day is guaranteed to win an all-new Chrysler Town and Country Limited minivan.
"Our 20th Anniversary is a huge milestone for the show," commented Michael Gelman, executive producer of Live with Regis and Kelly. "Few television shows reach a year on the air, much less two decades. We're proud that we've been able to bring fun, laughter and a positive start to the day to millions of viewers for so many years. At this point we've become part of the fabric of American pop culture."
As it enters its landmark 20th season, Live with Regis and Kelly continues its remarkable two-decade run as one of television's outstanding success stories, and the show's anniversary celebration will be a festive tribute to all things "Live." Every day from September 3-13, Philbin and Ripa will take a look back at the best of the past 20 years. Daily features will highlight all of the elements that have made the show such a long-running success story, from the wildest and wackiest segments to the most exciting, moving and one-of-a-kind moments. The September 14 one-hour episode will feature an in-depth look at Live with Regis and Kelly throughout the years. Original co-host Kathie Lee Gifford will return to join Philbin and Ripa to reminiscence about being part of one of daytime television's most popular franchises.
Live with Regis and Kelly also has partnered with Chrysler to share the 20th Anniversary celebration with the show's at-home viewers via "Live's 20th Anniversary Flashback Trivia A Go-Go." Twenty all-new Chrysler Town and Country Limited minivans will be given away in 20 days, and in addition to offering winners a spectacular new vehicle, Chrysler will cover the taxes for each minivan.
"The Chrysler brand is thrilled to celebrate the 20th season milestone of Live with Regis and Kelly by providing 20 new 2008 Chrysler Town & Country minivans with the exciting new Swivel 'n Go(TM) seating system," said Michael Curmi, Senior Manager - Entertainment Marketing, Chrysler LLC.
Live with Regis and Kelly's fans have been consistent viewers for most of the show's two decades on the air, so in a new twist on "Travel Trivia," the "Flashback Trivia A Go-Go" questions will relate to the past 20 seasons on Live with Regis and Kelly.
