If you've spent more than 15 minutes listening to the Bruce and the Kennel Club Morning show on 97.3 The Dawg you know I love Kelly Ripa. That being said, I also have a deep fondness and respect for Regis Philbin too. Regis has been a broadcast idol for many years for me. He has been a success at just about any challenge thrown his way. Now he is retiring, but not for the reason he told us on television!
