Congrats, Kathie Lee! TODAY anchor joins Broadcasting & Cable Hall of Fame

Broadcasting & Cable have announced a new entry into their 2015 Hall of Fame class, and it's none other than our own Kathie Lee Gifford!

Gifford, who's been part of the TODAY family since 2008, has had a long and varied career in the industry.

Before Hoda Kotb was her on-camera cohort, Gifford worked alongside Regis Philbin for 15 years — first as part of "The Morning Show" and then in their memorable daytime talk show "Live With Regis and Kathie Lee."

And she's started entertaining fans on the small screen as host, singer and actress even before that '80s-and-beyond partnership.

The B&C Hall of Fame honor will take place Oct. 20, when Gifford will join fellow inductees Dr. Phil McGraw, Disney CEO Bob Iger and more for the publication's 25th anniversary gala.
