With Regis and Kelly, has announced his departure from the show that debuted in 1988 with Kathie Lee Gifford. Philbin, 79, said his final show will occur at the end of summer or in the fall.

Kelly Ripa, co-host on LIVE!, went on to praise Philbin saying “it has been a pleasure and a privilege and a dream come true,” in reference to her work with Philbin, wishing she could change his mind.

This will be my last year on this show, said Regis Philbin Tuesday morning on “Live! with Regis and Kelly.” It’s been a long time, it’s been 28 years since I’ve been here. And it was the biggest thrill of my life.
