About the author (1993)

Regis Philbin was born on August 25, 1933 in New York City. He was named after his father's high school, Regis High, a Catholic boy's school. He graduated from Cardinal Hayes High School in the Bronx, in 1951, and earned his degree in sociology from Notre Dame University in Indiana. Philbin started his entertainment career as a stagehand in KCOP-TV, Los Angeles. He progressed to his own local shows like "Regis Philbin's Saturday Night in St. Louis", following that as host of "A.M. Los Angeles" in 1975. He also worked on "The Tonight Show" as a page, and soon thereafter, as a news writer at a local Los Angeles station. Philbin also served in the U.S. Navy. When he joined "Live," he had already hosted nearly a dozen talk and game shows, between 1970 and 1990, and went though a series of cohosts, before clicking with Kathie Lee. He went through a similar trial period when Gifford left the show, finally accepting Kelly Ripa as his new cohost. Philbin has written a cookbook with Kathie Lee as well as a biography, "Who Wants to be Me?" His awards include: May 2001, winner, Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Game Show Host, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire; May 2001, winner, Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Talk Show Host, Live with Regis; 2001, TV Guide Personality of the Year; April 10, 2003, receives star on Hollywood Walk of Fame; August 20, 2004, sets Guinness World Record for "Most Hours on Camera" 15,188 hours; April 2006, inducted into the National Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame; June 2008, Lifetime Achievement Award from the Daytime Emmy Awards; 2009, Guinness World Record updated to 16,540.5 hours.

Kathie Lee Gifford was born in Paris, France on August 16, 1953. At the age of fourteen, she organized a folk group with her sister called Pennsylvania Next Right. She won Maryland's Junior Miss title and the national competition's Kraft Hostess Awards at the age of seventeen. She studied communications, drama, and the arts at Kansas State University. She went to Los Angeles at the age of twenty and got a minor role on the soap "Days of Our Lives. In 1977, she was a feature singer for the game show "Name That Tune" and later was a co-star in "Hee Haw Honeys," which was a spinoff of "Hee Haw." Gifford was a guest host on "A.M. Los Angeles" and was seen by the producers of "Good Morning America" and offered a job. She worked as substitute anchor and special correspondent, covering human-interest stories. Three years later, she auditioned for co-host of "The Morning Show" with Regis Philbin. She got the job and continued working on "Good Morning America" for the first year. In 1988, the show's name was changed to "Live with Regis and Kathie Lee." She left the show in 2000. On April 7, 2008, she started co-hosting the fourth hour of "NBC's Today Show" with Hoda Kotb. Gifford also has a singing career, which has included her singing with symphonies across the nation. She has recorded two songs for the Winnie the Pooh's 69th anniversary for Walt Disney Records and has completed an album of lullabies for children. She has also recorded albums titled "Sentimental," "It's Christmastime," and "The Heart of a Woman." She is also the author of "I Can't Believe I Said That," "Listen to My Heart," and "Just When I Thought I'd Dropped My Last Egg." Gifford has also been involved with many charities with her husband, Frank Gifford, such as Variety Club International's "The Children's Charity" and the Association to Benefit Children, out of which came the Cody Foundation. Resources from the foundation support Cody House and Cassidy's Place, named after their children, which provide shelter and care to H.I.V. positive and crack-addicted children.
