This might be the most amazing news we've heard in a really long time.

Kathie Lee Gifford announced on the fourth hour of the "Today" show on Monday that she has something new in store for viewers this week: her very own podcast.

“I've never done it before, you know me now with the iPhone, and the iPad, and the tweaking, and the — no twerking, but tweeting," Gifford said. "And now this coming Wednesday for the first time I’m going to have something called a podcast.”

The podcast will be titled "Kathie Lee And Company" and her very first guest will be...wait for it...Regis Philbin.

Gifford announced in early October that the podcast will give her a newfound freedom she's never had before.

“It will be the first time for me in a 45-year career where I’ve been able to completely control the content and best of all? I won’t need my hair or makeup done and there’s no need for Spanx!”

Just think — a Spanx-less and uncensored Kathie Lee! It's going to be so insane and incredible.
