CHRISTMAS COMES EARLY FOR JAMES GAGE; ATLANTA MAN WINS MERCURY VILLAGER MINIVAN ON "LIVE"
CHRISTMAS COMES EARLY FOR JAMES GAGE; ATLANTA MAN WINS MERCURY VILLAGER MINIVAN ON "LIVE" ATLANTA, Nov. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- James Gage received an early Christmas and birthday present from Regis Philbin and Kathie Lee Gifford today. "Live's" co-hosts picked out James' postcard entry in the "Live"/Mercury Villager Drive and Dream Vacation Contest. Gage had only to give the correct answer to a trivia question regarding yesterday's show. "Did you watch the show yesterday?" Philbin asked Gage. "No," Gage answered. "On no," moaned Gifford. "The question is about the show. Ask anyway, Reege," Gifford told her co-host, "maybe he can guess." Guess? No need. Gage had only been joking about not watching the show. Of course he was watching, and his correct answer made him the fifth minivan winner in the contest. "Surprised?" Gage said later when asked how he felt. "More like flabbergasted." Gage's postcard was chosen from more than 1 million entries. "They have so many entries," Gage added, "I never thought they'd pick mine. I only sent in about 15 cards. My birthday is Christmas Day, I guess Christmas and my birthday came early this year." In addition to winning the minivan, Gage will travel to Detroit to appear on the Nov. 20 remote broadcast of "Live." He will then have a chance to win the Grand Prize -- a customized vacation package and $5,000 cash. There are four more minivans to give away. Don't miss a "Live" moment. "Live" airs on WAGA-TV, Channel 5, weekdays at 9 a.m. -0- 11/13/92 /CONTACT: Hope Hartman of Buena Vista Productions, 818-247-1749/ CO: Buena Vista Productions ST: Georgia IN: ENT SU:
