Regis Philbin -- I'm Retiring from the Talk Show

79-year-old Philbin made the announcement this morning on "Live with Regis and Kelly."

Regis said he'll tape his last show towards the end of the summer -- but he didn't give a specific date.

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

Just wanna say I love Regis and he should not retire! Too many people retire and get depressed! He should semi-retire and do Live 2 x's a week with vacations in between! I am saddened to hear this news. I think Kelly is nice but this show belongs to Regis and no one can fill his shoes!

He's been around forever. I remember seeing him on an ABC episode of "That Girl" with Marlo Thomas back in the 1960...'s.

I love the show and watch it everyday of the week.I certainly will miss Regis and I hope he will enjoy his retirement.Regis made the show for many a year and I am sure Kelly and the crew will miss him also. If it counts for anything, keep Kelly on the show, and hire her husband Mark to take Regis's place! Love Kelly and Mark.

I have loved the Regis & Kelly show for years. It has been very apparent that Regis has been forgetful, I have been worried about Alzheimers where he is concerned. Kelly was an excellent actress on All My Children as was her husband Mark. It is time for Regis to finally enjoy life with Joy, his Daughter's and Grandchildren. I enjoyed all their stories and their banter. I do feel it is time for the Regis & Kelly Show Era to end. Kelly is very versatile in her life and can go on and do almost anything on TV. Those of us who really enjoyed the show have fond memories. The show related to all ages. Even their Christmas Shows with their Children were worth tuning in for. I seriously think it is time to end the show and let us all have the Great Memories that we have.

It only paralyzes a mans will to succeed when their mommy or daddy bails them out every time. What do you think the men did back then? they made it on their own.
