Regis Philbin: Retiring After 25 Years on Morning TV

Regis Philbin is retiring!  The veteran television host has decided that it’s time to lay back and enjoy his retirement years after gracing our morning TVs for nearly 25 years.

First it was Larry King, now Regis Philbin has announced that it is time to retire.    Reeg announced the big news during this morning’s taping of LIVE! with Regis and Kelly.  For those of you still reeling from the recent upheaval at CBS The Early Show there is no need to worry, the show will continue with host Kelly Ripa and a new host to be named later after Regis makes his exit next summer.     We can all expect to see a flurry of on-air tryouts to see which potential host has the best chemistry with Kelly.  

What will Regis do with all that free time on his hands?  Spend time with his family!  He is the father of four children and two grandkids.
