Since Regis Philbin first stepped in front of the camera 40 years ago, he has tackled talk shows, game shows, the literary world, and even the fashion industry. Now in its 14th season in national syndication, "LIVE with Regis and Kelly" originated in 1983 when Philbin created "The Morning Show" for WABC in his native Manhattan; it quickly became the number one show in the market. In May 2001, The Daytime Emmy Awards honored him with two Emmy’s: Outstanding Talk Show Host for "LIVE," and Outstanding Game Show Host for "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire." Philbin received the 2001 TV Guide Award for Personality of the Year and Broadcasting & Cable Lifetime Achievement Award. He was also presented with a Crystal Apple Award for his contributions to the New York television industry from former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani.
In October 2001 Joy Behar launched her monthly column "Talk To Me" in Good Housekeeping, where she dispenses advice with her usual mixture of common sense and humor. In August 2002, Joy hosted Love, Hate & Joy for ABC Family. Taped in front of a live studio audience, the five-night half-hour show took an unprecedented comedic look at the many facets of love, from dating to divorce. In May, 2001 Joy and her fellow View co-hosts were awarded the Safe Horizon Chamion Award for their continued efforts of raising awareness of issues of importance to girls and women and for serving as confident, compassionate role models dedicated to excellence in the battle against violence and victimization. In 2000, Ms. Behar was also the recipient of the Gracie Allen Tribute Award from the Foundation of American Women in Radio and Television & the New York City Public Advocate’s Special Advocate Award for her outstanding friendship to the gay community.
