Regis Says Goodbye to Daytime

posted by Nell Minow

Regis Philbin has announced that he will leave his daily “Live” show sometime this year. He is 79 years old and has been doing the show for 28 years. His many television appearances have made him the Guiness Book of Records champ with more than 15 thousand hours on the air.
It is not easy to host a show that people welcome into their homes every day. Regis makes it look easy, which is what makes him so good.
So, do you think they’ll have a bunch of guest hosts, as they did before selecting Kelly Ripa to replace Kathy Lee Gifford? Who would you like to see in Regis’ chair?

    We will miss you Regis, that is wonderful for someone to retire and be happy with your decision. Only that person can make the decision to do what you are doing. Don’t let anyone change your mind you deserve it. This is all about you.
    And Good Luck.

    Thanks, Chris — he will be hard to replace.

    Yes it’s time for Regis to sign off. He’s had a great run. I think Kelly and her husband Mark would be a great replacement.
