Syndicated morning talk show that has aired since 1983. With roots in A.M. Los Angeles and A.M. New York, Live began as "The Morning Show", hosted by Regis Philbin and Cyndy Garvey; the show rose to national prominence as "Live with Regis and Kathie Lee", when Philbin was joined by Kathie Lee Gifford. That incarnation of the program ran for 12 years before Gifford left the show and was replaced with soap opera star Kelly Ripa. The show continued as "Live with Regis and Kelly" for another decade before Ripa, after hosting with guest co-hosts for nearly a year, was paired with former NFL star Michael Strahan. Kelly Ripa currently co-hosts the series with Ryan Seacrest. This show made Regis Philbin one of the most recognized faces of American TV.
