I LOVE KATHIE LEE, BUT...: Kathie Lee Gifford has announced her return to TV. She will be a special correspondent for the syndicated magazine show, "The Insider", hosted by Pat O'Brien. It's a trendy, celebrity-driven piece of fluff, similar to "Access Hollywood" or "Entertainment Tonight." This does not seem to be the best fit for Ms. Gifford's talents. I loved her on "Live with Regis and Kathie Lee", watched every day. She was hilarious and high energy and above all else, spontaneous. While she's been a correspondent before, years ago for "Good Morning America", as a news reporter, you don't have the same opportunity for fun and creativity. She will apparently be covering the New York City/Broadway entertainment beat. Most of America could care less about Broadway. Stars on Broadway are not usually well-known and most of the country never gets to see a play done on the strip. Ultimately, I just don't see this as being a good fit for her talents. I guess what I'd really like is for her to go back to mornings with Regis.
Please put your own "me" in media, and tell me what you think.
