TV talk show 'LIVE! with Kelly' coming to Banff National Park in Rocky Mountains

  • Print

BANFF, Alta. - One of the most popular American TV talk shows will get a bit of a Rocky Mountain high when it comes to Banff National Park this April.

"LIVE! with Kelly" plans to broadcast from The Banff Centre, a national arts training school, in Banff, Alta., from April 2 to April 5.

The show's executive producer says celebrity actress and host Kelly Ripa (RIPP'-ah) and her co-hosts also plan to enjoy some of the area's winter sports.

Michael Gelman says their activities will be broadcast to the millions of viewers who tune into the show every day.

"LIVE!" airs on CTV in Canada, and Gelman says Canadians are some of the New-York-based show's most loyal and enthusiastic viewers.

Ripa and her now retired co-host Regis Philbin broadcast four shows from Prince Edward Island in July 2010.

"This will be our first visit to Alberta, and the majesty of the Canadian Rockies will be a stunning setting for the shows,” Gelman said in a release.

The area's tourism association is also looking forward to the visit.

“We look forward to welcoming Kelly, her guests and the entire crew ... to Banff National Park,” said Julie Canning, president of Banff Lake Louise Tourism.

“It is truly an honour to have Kelly showcase the magic of Canada’s first and finest national park to her audience."
