Hot adult contemporary WTMX-FM (101.9) morning drive co-host Eric Ferguson is one of 10 radio hosts who are finalists to serve as co-host for a day of the popular TV talk show "Live! with Regis and Kelly." The five temps will fill in for Regis Philbin while he is on vacation from January 24 to 28.
Viewers of "Live" were asked to nominate their favorite local radio host for the one-day job. After tens of thousands of nominations were received, "Live's" producers narrowed the field to the Top 100, which was then whittled to the 10 finalists. Beginning today at LiveRegisandKelly.com, viewers can vote for the five broadcasters they would like to see as co-hosts with Kelly Ripa. Voting will remain open until January 16, and the five winners will be announced on Jan. 17.
