Two-time Tony winner Bernadette Peters will co-host "Live with Regis & Kathie Lee" this Thursday (March 23) with Regis Philbin. Peters, who currently heads the cast of the hit revival of Annie Get Your Gun, will fill in for Kathie Lee Gifford, who was on Broadway herself this season in Stephen Sondheim's Putting It Together. This will mark Peters' second time filling in for Gifford, who recently announced she will leave the syndicated talk show this summer. Coincidentally, it's been rumored that Gifford may succeed Peters in AGYG when Peters leaves the Irving Berlin musical at the end of July.
"Live with Regis & Kathie Lee" airs in the New York area on WABC-TV Channel 7 from 9 to 10 AM.
