LIVE WITH KELLY: TV Anchor Pat Kiernan: ‘The New Regis?’…..New Report Suggests He’s Frontrunner!

Pat Kiernan — anchor at NYC news channel NY1 — will co-host Live With Kelly this week with Kelly Ripa, and the New York Post is already suggesting he’s the one to fill Regis Philbin‘s shoes.

In an item headlined “The new Regis?” the Post reports ABC is “trying out” Pat with host Kelly Ripa, and “something could be brewing here.”

This week’s guest co-hosts kicked off Monday with Nick Lachey — who announced that wife Vanessa is pregnant — and others this week include actor Ewan McGregor, funnyman Martin Short, and actor Willem Dafoe, star of the film John Carter.
