The high-energy weathercaster held her own sitting next to veteran broadcaster Regis Philbin. â€śI am ready to go,â€ť she exclaimed as she came out onto the stage. â€śYou look like it,â€ť Philbin responded with emphasis in response to her high intensity. With tremendous stage chemistry the two humorously bantered back and forth like that throughout the show.
