Regis Philbin Announces Final Show

Regis Philbin will leave 'Live! With Regis and Kelly' for good on Fri., Nov. 18. The legendary TV host made the announcement of his final show live on his long-running morning program Mon., Sept. 6.
Philbin has been with the show from its start. Originally a local New York City talk show titled 'The Morning Show' from 1983 - 1988, Philbin and Kathie Lee Gifford took the show national in 1988.
For a brief period after Gifford's departure in 2000, the show was titled simply 'Live! With Regis' until Kelly Ripa joined Philbin in 2001.
The talk show plans to honor Philbin in style. For the next three months the show will roll out new segments for the "Regis Farewell Celebration Season."
Leading up to Philbin's final show in November, 'Live' will spotlight some of the host's top moments and reminisce about classic memories. The regular 'Live' trivia segment will be rebranded so as to be nostalgia-based.
