Regis Philbin to Retire From Live With Regis and Kelly in Fall 2011

Regis Philbin Is Retiring — Will You Miss Him?

On this morning's episode of Live With Regis and Kelly, Regis Philbin announced that the current season will be his last. After 28 years of cohosting the morning talk show (remember when it was Live With Regis and Kathie Lee?), Philbin will be retiring at the end of the Summer. At 79 years old, I suppose it was only a matter of time, but I have to admit that I'm kind of bummed about this news. Sure, days when I can actually watch Regis and Kelly are few and far between, but I've grown up with the show, and there's something sweetly comforting about Philbin's banter with Ripa.

As for what will happen next year, we'll still have to wait to find out how the show will go on without Philbin. After 10 years, Ripa has clearly made a name for herself as the face of the morning show, and it wouldn't be the first time she took the reins without her copilot (various celebs have filled in for Philbin over the years). Do you have any ideas for who should take over for Regis? And more importantly — will you miss him?

I've been to 5 tapings of the show (3 with Kathie Lee and 2 with Kelly) and he has always been such a fun and entertaining persona on and off screen. The show won't be the same without him no matter who the replacement is. Hopefully I'll get down to see him once last time before he leaves.

I will miss him :) He specifically said though that he was not retiring, he was just "moving on."

Regis is adorable, and I've especially loved his interactions with Kelly Ripa. But Kelly is a force of her own.
