Regis Philbin Announces Retirement From Weekday Talk Show

Veteran broadcaster Regis Philbin says he's retiring from his weekday talk show.

Regis, 79, made the announcement at the start of Tuesday morning's "Live With Regis and Kelly," which he has hosted for a quarter-century, most recently sharing hosting duties with Kelly Ripa.

Philbin said he would be stepping down from the show around the end of the summer, but he didn't specify a departure date.

    Yes, we need more shows to focus on movies & actors to further the income that movies make for the movie industry. Thank You TV networks. Jay Leno, Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel, Ellen, etc....

    funny, this is news, yet when one of WITN's own anchors disappears from the air waves, nothing is ever mentioned. they just get replaced by another person with two first names.

    The show sucks anyway. Id rather climb a tree and jump off the highest limb than watch it.

    Who cares,it's a girly and a man girly show anyway. Probably will be replaced by some hard core left wing dweeb like Alec Baldwin or Michael Moore.There goes that shows ratings.
