Mike Catherwood is a 32-year old radio veteran, known to most people outside of New York as the co-host of the national syndicated Loveline with Dr. Drew. The show, though, is not heard in New York.
Catherwood, got his big exposure with the Big Apple when he was selected by Live with Regis and Kelly as part of the “Men of Radio Co-host for the Day” contest. By January of 2011, the native of Pasadena, California had a fill-in opportunity on the show opposite Kelly Ripa. That led to an appearance last season on Dancing With The Stars.
“It’s been insane. I’ve been lucky enough to have way more success in the radio industry than I could ever dream of. But the radio industry is an incredibly anonymous industry,” Catherwood says. “When you all of a sudden put your face out there on such a visible stage as the Regis and Kelly show, it was crazy to see people’s reactions.”
