REGIS TO RETIRE FROM TV SHOW

Postby Bubca » Tue Jan 18, 2011 10:49 am

Not earth shattering news, but Regis announced that he is leaving his TV show. I did not realize that he was 79.
There are two people still on TV who are older than him. Barbara Walters is 81 and Andy Rooney just turned 92.

Regis Philbin said Tuesday that he is retiring from his weekday talk show.
NEW YORK -

The broadcast veteran said on 'Live with Regis and Kelly' on Tuesday that he will step down around the end of the summer.

Regis, 79, made the announcement at the start of Tuesday morning's Live With Regis and Kelly, the AP reported.

He has hosted the show for a quarter-century, most recently with Kelly Ripa.

Philbin said he would be stepping down from the show around the end of the summer.

Wonder if Ripa will continue on or is the show kaput?

My guess is they will continue on and get someone younger but they will have guest hosts with Kelly for a while to test the waters (and ratings).
