NEW YORK (April 15, 2016) – Megaphone TV’s Emmy(R)-award winning technologies premiered on “Live! with Kelly and Michael,” WABC-TV/Disney-ABC Domestic Television’s long running daily syndicated morning talk and entertainment program.

During the April 15 premiere, Hosts Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan invited the home audience to be a part of a “Live!” staple, going back to the days of “Regis and Kathie Lee,” the opening “host chat,” where Kelly and Michael discuss the news of the day before bringing on their guests. The Megaphone TV audience voted on such diverse topics as “Beards: Turn on or Turn Off?” and were able to express an opinion on AMC’s controversial proposal to allow texting while movies are shown in their theaters.  Both Kelly and Michael agreed with the audience’s immediate overwhelming reaction to not allow the practice.

“It is fantastic to be a part of such an incredibly entertaining and energetic daily show such as ‘Live!’, said Dan Albritton, CEO and Founder of Megaphone TV.  “Right out of the gate, Kelly and Michael’s on-air enthusiasm for Megaphone TV’s participation television translated into immediate audience engagement.  We can’t wait for Megaphone’s participation TV to become an integral part of the daily show.”
