We're not seeing the last of him just yet!

Although Regis Philbin announced this week that he would be leaving his talk show, Live With Regis and Kelly, later this year, the 80 year old reportedly has no plans to retire, and is looking to revamp his career in a big way - starting with the decision to leave his agent of 25 years, Jim Griffin at Paradigm, and going back to his original agency, WME.

Sources close to the host reveal that he was offered a new deal for his spot on Live, but he declined, and told bosses that he wanted a 'life change.'

Maybe he's looking to have a Betty White-esque comeback!

Either way, we're glad to know that he's not dropping out of the public eye JUST YET, and we'll be curious to see where he's planning on taking his career!

Congratulations, bb!

Thoughts??
