Regis Philbin announced today that after 28 years of hosting his morning talk show, first with co-host Kathy Lee and in recent years Kelly Ripa, that he will finally be hanging up his kid’s sized Brookes Brothers suit for good and retiring from the show at the end of this summer. A collective, giant cry was heard from senior citizens in Florida and around America as Regis exclaimed “There is a time that everything must come to an end for certain people on camera, especially certain old people,“. 20 bucks says he eats it before then.
While on the subject, long time show producer Michael Gelman took the time to speculate on some potential replacements for Regis to continue on with Kelly Ripa.
