    Eric Ferguson, co-host of the "Eric & Kathy" morning show on 101.9 WTMX-FM, sipped coffee this morning alongside Kelly Ripa on "Live! with Regis and Kelly."

    Ferguson won the one-day co-host gig in Ripa's "Men of Radio" contest.

    During the show, Ferguson recounted to Ripa such funny stories such as the time he once accidentally threw away his wife's wedding dress.

    They also chatted about Ferguson's recovery from heart surgery, family diets and parties. Today is Ferguson's birthday and, at the end of the show, a clown wheeled a cake onto the set.

    Actors Kelsey Grammer and Mark Feuerstein appeared as guests on the show.
