Regis Philbin wants to quit ‘Live With Regis & Kelly’ in NovemberFebruary 8th, 2011 - 9:05 pm ICT by Aishwarya Bhatt
New York City, Feb 8 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Sad news for the lovers of Regis Philbin’s breakfast show on ABC: Regis Philbin is retiring from the show. This he announced on the show in late January. And while he didn’t give a definite retirement date then, he did make it clear that this would be his last season on the show. In a subsequent interview, Regis Philbin hinted that the most likely departure date was November (in ABC’s November sweeps), although he was reluctant to speculate about possible replacements to him.
While news about Regis Philbin’s departure from the breakfast show will definitely be received with sadness by many of his fans, it will not be too surprising; because – in his words – it was ‘bound to come soon or later’ (he is 80 years old now).
However in the latter interview, Regis Philbin was at pains to explain that he isn’t retiring: he just wants to ‘relax a little bit.’ The day he announced the move on the show, Regis Philbin was equally keen on making it clear that it wasn’t a total retirement from showbiz he was keen on, but rather than he was just ‘moving on.’ That has stoked speculation on what his next step is likely to be, once the ‘little bit of relaxation’ is over. It remains to be seen what will be the next stop for Regis Philbin after ABC.
