We all know that Regis Philbin and Kathie Lee Gifford were daytime television’s original OTP.
Now, Regis & Kathie Lee shippers can rejoice once more, because it’s been reported that the 83-year-old will join Today as a contributor!
The former Who Wants to Be A Millionaire? host will join Kathie Lee and Hoda Kotb on the fourth hour of the popular morning broadcast.
While the Regis has been no stranger to Today over the past few months, his role as contributor will solidify his presence when co-host Kotb fills in for anchors on the earlier hour of the NBC program.
Tammy Filler, co-executive producer of the long-running show gushed about the show’s new addition, saying:
“Regis brings his legendary charm and humor each time he visits Today. His energy is infectious, and when Regis is around, you never know what will happen.”
It looks like Regis better start building up his wine tolerance!
