Regis Philbin will retire from the show he hosts alongside Kelly Ripa in November, to give everyone time to set up a proper farewell for him. He had been a part of the show for a staggering 29 years!!
He had originally been slated to part ways with his morning seat in August!
The source also says there is no real update on who will replace him:
"Mr. Davis says WABC has not yet addressed the question of who will replace the 79-year-old Mr. Philbin, aside from asking the host to stay on through November. His replacement will be essential: Regis and Kelly."
We brought U all the rumblings of perhaps the seksi Josh Duhamel being his replacement. Such a interesting (and CUTE) choice if it's true!
Are U happy Reeg is staying on for a while?? Who should replace him??
