Years ago, Wisconsin’s Morning News’ Jane Matenaer auditioned to become Regis Philbin’s co-host on Live with Regis.
At the time, the show was looking for a replacement for Kathie Lee Gifford.
“I was thinking ‘What is the most embarrassingly painful thing I can submit that will get attention?'” Matenaer told WTMJ. The radio morning show host decided to sing a song ‘in the nude.’
“I was hiding behind a boom box wearing a swimming suit,” she explained. “It was fun.”
The performance caught the attention of the show’s producers and Regis played it on the show. Despite her 15 minutes of fame, Matenaer still didn’t get the job.
