Today on ‘Live With Regis and Kelly,’ Regis Philbin announced that he would be retiring from the show this year.
According to a source, his co-host Kelly Ripa was blindsided by his announcement, finding out during the show with the rest of the world.
So who will replace Philbin on the show? The possibilities are endless, as many have filled in for Philbin’s shoes during his days off, but if we could personally throw a name into the hat, we’d vote Anderson Cooper.
This departure comes during the same one year span as Larry King on his own ‘Live’ show, and Oprah Winfrey announcing she’s leaving ‘Oprah.’
Will no Regis mean ‘Live’ takes a hit in the ratings?
