You gotta give Bobby Stuckey props. Anyone who's willing to endure the clownish theatrics of Kathie Lee Gifford, co-
bubble head host of NBC's Today show, deserves his day in the spotlight, which is exactly where Stuckey, the master sommelier at Boulder's Frasca Food & Wine, will be this morning when he courageously shares space with the she-devil herself to talk about wines (providing he can get a word in edgewise).
Stuckey's segment will air between 11 a.m. and noon on KUSA Channel 9 and it'll include his top holiday wine picks for everyone from your editor to your chihuahua walker. And lest you think that Stuckey's selections will be pricier than Kathie Lee's Botox treatments, think again: "His picks will include wines ranging from $15 to $20 that won't break the bank to a couple of higher end wines ranging from $50 to $75 that will blow people away," says Stuckey's spokeswoman, Camilla Ferenczi.
How much are you willing to bet that Kathie Lee puts a cork in her mouth?
