Regis Philbin Leaves 'Live' After 28 Years
Regis Philbin appears on his final show of Live! With Regis & Kelly on Friday (November 18) in New York City.
The 80-year-old talk show host bid farewell after 28 years on the morning program.
“I wanted this to be a show where people would feel better about themselves, would look at life in maybe a different way, a funnier way. I think that’s what we’ve accomplished … I’m going out a pretty proud and happy guy,” Regis told the audience, which included current co-host Kelly Ripa, Donald Trump, former co-host Kathie Lee Gifford, Tony Danza, and NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who handed him a key to the city.
“I’ll always remember spending these mornings with all of you,” he added. “Thank you very much for these great years together, God bless you all and I hope I see you again real soon. Thanks everybody.”
