The statement continued, “His family and friends are forever grateful for the time we got to spend with him – for his warmth, his legendary sense of humor, and his singular ability to make every day into something worth talking about. We thank his fans and admirers for their incredible support over his 60-year career and ask for privacy as we mourn his loss.”

Regis began hosting Live! with Regis and Kathie Lee alongside Kathie Lee Gifford back in 1988. He then hosted alongside Kelly Ripa until he left the show in 2011.
