Is Kathie Lee Gifford joining the Today show team? Yes, if we are to believe Newsday's TV blog. FTV Live, a subscription-only site for the news biz that apparently has the "exclusive."

FTV claims that Gifford skews "older female," making her a perfect choice to anchor Today's fourth hour. It's unclear what this scoop means for Ann Curry and/or Natalie Morales and/or Hoda Kotb, who currently share anchor duties there.

Gay, for one, supports the idea, saying that with Rosie O'Donnell MIA from daytime, "it's all become so bland and tired. Yes, of course, Reeg is still great. And sure, I love Babs Walters, but the dear girl isn't on all the time, and when she's not (even when she is) The View is so dreadfully polite." (I am now convinced that "Verne Gay" is my nana's pen name.)

I, for one, remember Gifford's tenure on Regis and Kathie Lee with a mixture of amusement and horror. She's kind of kind of isn't.

What do you think? Is this a good idea for Today? For "KLG"? WWRD (What Would Regis Do)? - Mickey O'Connor
