Happy Birthday “Reeg” – Regis Philbin

Another celebrity birthday during the Frog Days of Summer! He’s done just about everything there is to do on television and has spent more time in front of the camera than any other personality. Today, Regis Philbin celebrates his 80th birthday.

I think “Reeg” still looks great and sounds sharp, but this will be his last year (we’re told) hosting “Live with Regis and Kelly” .

according to Wikipedia:

Regis Francis Xavier Philbin(born August 25, 1931) is an American media personality, actor and singer, known for hosting talk and game shows from the 1960s to the present. Philbin is often called (somewhat tongue-in-cheek and alternately attributed to James Brown) “the hardest working man in show business”and holds the Guinness World Record for the most time spent in front of a television camera. With each TV appearance, he adds to his record for most hours logged (16,100, as certified by Guinness World Records in 2008). His trademarks include his excited manner, his New York Bronx accent, his wit, and irreverent ad-libs. He is most widely known for Live with Regis and Kelly (which rose to fame as Live with Regis and Kathie Lee),Who Wants to Be a Millionaire,Million Dollar Password,and for hosting the first season of America’s Got Talent.

On January 18, 2011, Philbin announced plans to leave Live with Regis and Kelly at the end of the 2010-11 season. However, less than a month later, he announced he will officially leave Leave at the end of November 2011.
