Weathercaster Tamara Taggart to Guest Co-Host on Live! With Regis And Kelly

As announced this morning on CTV’s LIVE! WITH REGIS AND KELLY, CTV BC weathercaster Tamara Taggart has been selected to guest co-host on LIVE! WITH REGIS AND KELLY, having made the Top 10 in the “From Local to LIVE Co-Host for a Day” search. Taggart will fill in for Kelly Ripa one day during the week of August 17-21.

The search, which began on June 26, generated thousands of nominations for broadcasters across North America. On Monday, July 27 Taggart and CTV Toronto weathercaster Tom Brown were selected as the only Canadian top 20 finalists. Today Taggart’s position in the Top 10 was confirmed – guaranteeing her a co-hosting role on the show one day next month. Taggart joins four other female and five male North American broadcasters who will become guest co-hosts, selected as the result of hundreds of thousands of votes from viewers across North America.

“I am absolutely over the moon!” said Taggart. “I’m excited, nervous and most importantly honoured to have this incredible opportunity to fill in for Kelly Ripa”.

LIVE! WITH REGIS AND KELLY airs Monday to Friday at 9 a.m. ET on CTV (visit CTV.ca to confirm local listings). The series is executive produced by Michael Gelman and is distributed by Disney-ABC Domestic Television
