It was September 1996 that Regis Philbin and Kathie Lee Gifford brought their syndicated popular television show to Niagara Falls. Two shows were held outdoors at the foot of Clifton Hill in Oakes Garden Theatre. The shows were seen by millions throughout North America. I had the pleasure of appearing with both of them on one of the shows. I had escorted them the day before around Niagara Falls. Kathie Lee to the Table Rock Scenic Tunnels (now, Journey Behind the Falls) in the morning and Regis I took for a drive along the Niagara Parkway to Niagara on the Lake where we took the Whirlpool Jet boat ride.

On the show Regis was even kind enough to give one of my Niagara guidebooks a plug!

The shows were a great success and a few years later the TV show returned to the same location with a new co-host Kelly Ripa.
