Celebrity Guests Invade WNYW’s Good Day New York

As Good Day New York co-anchor Rosanna Scotto vacations, WNYW/Channel 5, is taking a page from the Live from Regis and Kelly playbook–bringing in celebrity guest hosts for the first time.

From 7 a.m. to 9 a.m., it will be business as usual, Greg Kelly with reporter Tai Hernandez. However, the 9 a.m. portion of Good Day is sure to make for some interesting television.

On Monday, Wendy Willams fans get a two-hour block of the radio turned TV personality. She’ll co-host the final hour of Good Day with Kelly, followed hosting her usual show at 10 a.m.  Then, the first of three “real housewives” sits on the Good Day set. 

Countess Luanne from the Real Housewives of New York City, taking on co-hosting on Tuesday, while Teresa Giudice of the Real Housewives of New Jersey sits on the Good Day couch on Wednesday. Another Real Housewife of New Jersey, Dina Manzo gets her chance to shine.

On Thursday, regular Good Day contributor Lisa Oz, wife of Dr. Oz (who hosts a popular health and wellness show on Channel 5 each afternoon at 4 p.m.) gets the co-hosting duties for a day.
