Top Morning Talk Show Teams Up With Pontiac for 'Live's Pontiac Extreme Van-A-Day Giveaway'

NEW YORK, Jan. 11 -- This February, "Live with Regis and Kelly" is featuring the biggest promotion in the show's history, teaming up with Pontiac for an exciting month-long contest, "Live's Pontiac Extreme Van-A-Day Giveaway." Throughout the month, the top morning talk show will give away more than $1 million in prizes, as one lucky viewer each weekday is guaranteed to win the all-new 2005 Pontiac Montana SV6 Sport Van, the latest addition to Pontiac's stellar family of vehicles. And "Live" is covering the taxes, as well as offering winners one of several fabulous additional prizes to go with each car, including a second SV6 Sport Van to give to a friend!

"We've given away all kinds of prizes -- vacations, cars, even a house -- but we've never done anything this big before," said Michael Gelman, Executive Producer of "Live with Regis and Kelly." "Every weekday in February, someone is guaranteed to win a car -- maybe two! -- with us covering the taxes. This is a huge contest for us, and we can't wait to get started."

"Every year, Gelman gets all excited about some new promotion, but I have to tell you, this one is big," noted host Regis Philbin. Co-host Kelly Ripa added, "What a great contest for our audience. As a parent of three kids, I can tell you a sport van like this would be a terrific prize."

The excitement begins the week of January 17, when five clues will be announced on "Live with Regis and Kelly," one each day of the week. To enter, viewers must write all five clues on a postcard and send it to:

Live's Pontiac Extreme Van-A-Day Giveaway
P.O. Box 7731
Burbank, CA 91510

Viewers also can enter at http://www.liveregisandkelly.com, where full contest rules are available.

Beginning on February 1, "Live's" daily "Travel Trivia" segment will be replaced by the "Extreme Van-A-Day Giveaway." Entrants who have submitted all five correct clues will have the chance to be contacted via phone for their shot at answering a trivia question about a previous show, live on the air. If they're right, they win a 2005 Pontiac Montana SV6!

In addition, the Travel Trivia wheel will be transformed into an "Extreme Van-A-Day" prize wheel, with a variety of valuable add-ons to make their SV6 even more special, including the chance to win an additional SV6, for a friend. Other add-ons include XM Satellite Radio service, OnStar "Directions and Connections" service, a maintenance contract, gas for a full year, and a mobile entertainment package of DVDs, music and games.

Combining the rugged look of an SUV with the utility of a mid-van, Pontiac's all-new SV6 crossover sport van delivers with sporty styling, responsive performance with available all-wheel drive and segment-leading in-vehicle entertainment choices. A DVD video system is standard and XM satellite radio is available, offering more than 100-channels music, news, and entertainment. Later this year, SV6 buyers will also have the option of the PhatNoise entertainment system, providing digital storage and playback of an individual owner's music, videos and arcade-style video games.

"Live with Regis and Kelly" is executive produced by Michael Gelman, and has been distributed in national syndication by Buena Vista Television since 1988. Produced by WABC-TV in New York, "Live with Regis and Kelly" airs in more than 200 markets across the country.
