So long, Regis.
After 28 years and three different co-hosts, Regis Philbin says this will be his last season on his morning talk show – the program currently known as 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," Philbin, who will turn 80 in August, said on the program Tuesday morning.

If you have hopes of sharing morning coffee with Anderson Cooper by next year, think again. The CNN anchor, 43, told PEOPLE that there's not truth to rumors he'll be replacing Regis Philbin, 78, on the latter's ABC a.m. show next year.
"Regis is the king," Cooper says. "He's not going anywhere!"
Cooper, who's occasionally subbed for Philbin alongside Kelly Ripa, said at the New Yorkers for Children Benefit at Cipriani 42nd Street on Tuesday night that even his journalistic skills couldn't sleuth out where the rumors started.

Live with Regis and Kelly is getting a makeover for 2009. On Monday, the chatty morning show will debut a crisp new high-definition look and a new theme song.
Stars Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa will also appear in a revamped opening segment that works more New York City scenes into the picture, according to producers. But one element that will not change a bit is the show's Central Park-view backdrop. Producers opted to keep the mesh piece instead of upgrading to a hi-def version to keep a touch of softness.

It's back to the future for Regis Philbin, who's been tapped to host the red-carpet show immediately preceding the Oscars telecast in February – the same job he had some 30 years ago.
"Regis is the perfect guy to serve as host. He knows everyone, and everyone loves Regis!" producer Dennis Doty says in a statement. "I'm thrilled that he has agreed to be the ringmaster for this year's extravaganza."
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is producing the show, which airs Feb. 24 on ABC. Philbin, 76, who co-hosts Live With Regis & Kelly, will guide the half-hour lead-in red-carpet interview show. Philbin was "a pioneer interviewer of arriving stars" at the Oscars in the 1970s, according to the Academy.
The 80th Academy Awards nominations will be announced Jan. 22 at 5:30 a.m. PT.

TEASED: Regis Philbin, 73, introduced Jeff Probst, 43, on Tuesday's Live with Regis & Kelly with more than a suggestion that the Survivor host (who has subbed for Reege in the past) was being groomed to take over for Philbin when he retires. "This is a guy who would kill to sit here every day," Philbin said on camera, before telling cohost Kelly Ripa that Probst "sits here and he looks at you – the whole thing is developing before your eyes." Replied Ripa: "I think a little jealousy is what we're watching unfold." A spokesperson for the Live told the New York Post after the show aired: "Regis was kidding around with a friend of the show, and it's nothing more than that."
