Regis Philbin Announces Retirement
Regis Philbin announced that he is retiring from his talk show after nearly 25 years. Yup, he had a good run!

Regis, who is 79-years old made the big announcement this morning on "Live with Regis and Kelly."

He even joked during his announcement saying, "There is a time that everything must come to an end for certain people on camera, especially certain old people."

Philbin has had an amazing career in television. He has been a television personality since the 1950s. His "LIVE" talk show premiered in 1988 as "Live with Regis & Kathie Lee."

First it was Larry King and now Regis Philbin. I wonder who's next? Barbara?
