Randy Jackson (search), "American Idol" judge, is being groomed to host a morning show in 2006, according to reports.
The once-rotund music biz whiz would team with Lauren Sanchez (search), host of FOX's "So You Think You Can Dance," for what some are calling an "urban Regis and Kelly," according to Broadcasting & Cable, the authoritative trade magazine.
Jackson is the least known of the three "Idol" judges — with Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul — and surely the least controversial.
The show would start on the FOX stations — likely as a replacement for "Good Day Live," which was pulled off the air earlier this year.
Coupling Jackson with Sanchez, an enertainment reporter for a local L.A. TV station, would "make sense," according to B&C, because the FOX stations are geared to appeal to young, urban viewers.
Neither FOX nor Endeavor, the agency that reps both Jackson and Sanchez — and packaged the show — would comment.
Before "Idol," Jackson was a Grammy Award-winning record producer, who came to fame as a bass player for the rock band Journey.
