Austin radio personality Bobby Bones co-hosted "Live! With Regis and Kelly" Wednesday as one of five winners of the nationally syndicated television show's "Men of Radio Co-Host for a Day Search."
Bones displayed comfortable chemistry with co-host Kelly Ripa, reading a funny, self-deprecating poem he had written for her Tuesday night and carefully choosing moments to interject his quick wit. When 12-year-old guest Rico Rodriguez from ABC's "Modern Family" responded to questions about his love life by saying he was years away from that, Bones responded "So am I, dude. So am I."
"I didn't want to try too hard, but I really wanted to have a presence," said Bones, who added that the most difficult thing about his appearance was just trying to be himself in an unfamiliar environment.
"They said they loved me," Bones said. "They may say that to everyone."
