'Psycho Mike' to co-host Regis & Kelly

January 27, 2011 12:00:00 AM PST
A DJ from the Los Angeles radio station KROQ will co-host "Live! with Regis and Kelly" on Friday.

"Live with Regis and Kelly" is spending a week that's really been "Live with Kelly and Guest hosts."

Regis was in Los Angeles last weekend, where he received the "Broadcast Legend" award at the annual Golden Mike Awards.

Kelly Ripa has been spending the week with fill-ins, and it was the viewers who decided who would be stepping into Philbin's shoes.

Local DJ, "Psycho Mike" Catherwood, is getting the chance of a lifetime to fill in on the morning talk show.

"It was quite unexpected; listeners nominated me, now I'm going to be part of internationally syndicated television," said Catherwood.

Catherwood spends his week days working on KROQ's Kevin and Bean Show and his nights sitting next to Dr. Drew Pinsky on the syndicated show "Loveline."

He doesn't exactly know what to expect when he takes Regis's chair this week. But what he does know is that he expects to be entranced by Kelly.

"I've had some details given to me by producers, but I haven't had a chance to talk to Kelly at all. I believe it's going to be pure romance when I do," said Catherwood. "At the end of the day, I hope my desire, and passion for Kelly, doesn't overwhelm me and I'm still capable of doing my job without looking like a love struck idiot."

Watch for Psycho Mike's daytime debut Friday at 9 a.m. here on ABC 7
