U.S.’s top morning talk show chooses Alberta’s Rocky Mountains for winter wonderland remote location
America’s most popular morning TV show, ‘LIVE! with Kelly’, is coming to Banff for four early April shows. Popular celebrity actress Kelly Ripa will host four shows from The Banff Centre’s 959-seat Eric Harvie Theatre April 2 – 5.
“We’re always happy when we have the opportunity to take ‘LIVE’ to Canada,” said Michael Gelman, executive producer, ‘LIVE! with Kelly.’ “We have a huge Canadian fan base – they’re some of our most loyal and enthusiastic viewers. This will be our first visit to Alberta, and the majesty of the Canadian Rockies will be a stunning setting for the shows.”
In addition to featuring celebrity guests and performers at The Banff Centre, Kelly and her co-hosts will head out of the theatre to enjoy the national park’s wonderland of winter sports and activities which will be broadcast to approximately four million American viewers who tune in to the show every day.
“We look forward to welcoming Kelly, her guests and the entire crew of ‘Live! With Kelly’ to Banff National Park,” said Julie Canning, president and CEO 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. We can’t wait to go ‘Live!’
LIVE’s remote broadcasts are made possible in partnership with Travel Alberta, The Banff Centre, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, the Canadian Tourism Commission and Banff Lake Louise Tourism as well as many other industry partners.
