Kathie Lee Gifford Lands Regis for First Episode of New Podcast

This sounds like another match made in podcast heaven.

To the freewheeling and long-form interview format on October 23 is coming another name-brand participant: TODAY co-host Kathie Lee Gifford. She is set to kick off her PodcastOne network program Kathie Lee and Company with none other than, as first guest, Regis Philbin. From today’s announcement:

“I’m so looking forward to this new podcast adventure,” says Gifford. “I feel like I’m in an episode of The Jetsons, soaring into unknown territory on my podcast.”

“It will be the first time for me in a 45-year career where I’ve been able to completely control the content and best of all? I won’t need my hair or makeup done and there’s no need for Spanx!”

We can’t wait. Norm Pattiz’s Courtside Entertainment already counts among its PodcastOne ranks the likes of Adam Carolla, Dennis Miller, Jillian Michaels, Ron Paul and Jay Mohr. In fact, per below, we just happened to write yesterday about Mohr’s latest episode featuring The Police’s Stewart Copeland.

Gifford was also, as it happens, the guest yesterday (October 9) on Laura Ingraham’s PodcastOne show Real Life with Laura.
