Kathie Lee Gifford has been tapped to co-host the National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association's "Headlines & Headliners," the organization's annual benefit event in New York City.

The event, which Gifford will co-host with "Today"'s Hoda Kotb, takes place Thursday, March 25 and kicks off the group's 20th Anniversary celebration, which more than 300 journalists are expected to attend.

"We are incredibly pleased that Kathie Lee and Hoda are kicking off NLGJA's twentieth year working for fairness, accuracy, and diversity in news coverage," said NLGJA Managing Director Michael Tune. "While many media organizations are in a financial crisis and LGBT issues continue to garner headlines, our nation cannot afford to have journalists or journalism silenced. This benefit helps keep our voice strong."

Kathie Lee & Hoda will also present NLGJA's fifth Leroy F. Aarons scholarship award.
