Years ago I had the opportunity to meet Regis Philbin and Kathy Lee Gifford when they were doing their show in Chicago. Kathy Lee left the show several years ago and was replaced by Kelly Ripa and Regis left the show some 9 months ago.
Since then some 59 co-hosts have joined Ripa on the set for the "Live" show. Of the 59 one has been selected to replace Regis and that person is Michael Strahan, the former New York Giant football player. It got me to thinking, if Strahan didn't get the job what local person would be a good fit?
