Regis Philbin Retires: Leaves Kelly Ripa Guessing
Regis Philbin announced that he will be retiring from his talk show this summer.
Regis Philbin announced via his talk show Live with Regis and Kelly that he would retire this Summer. After 25 years on the morning talk show, Philbin (79-years-old) has decided to call it quits. Of course this leaves Kelly Ripa guessing who will be her new co-host on the hit TV show.
For Regis Philbin, his LIVE franchise started back in 1988 with Kathie Lee Gifford as his co-host. When Kathie Lee’s time was up, Philbin was joined by Kelly Ripa in 2011 as she took over the co-hosting duties. Despite his long and successful run on the show, Regis says it is time for him to call it quits. He does state that they will be finding a new co-host for Kelly and the show will go on. Regis Philbin says he will officially retire sometime this summer but a date has not been set.
We want to wish Regis the best of luck with his retirement and want to thank him for all of the great years he has given us. Who do you want to be the replacement for Regis Philbin on Live With Regis and Kelly? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your choices!
