“His family and friends are forever grateful for the time we got to spend with him – for his warmth, his legendary sense of humour, and his singular ability to make every day into something worth talking about. We thank his fans and admirers for their incredible support over his 60-year career and ask for privacy as we mourn his loss,” they added.

Philbin was best known for the host of “Live! with Regis and Kathie Lee” for 15 years before Kathie Lee left and it became “Live! with Regis and Kelly” for another 10 years. Philbin then retired from the show.

His “Live!” family told us, “Our hearts are broken to learn the news about Regis’ passing. Regis originated ‘Live’ as a local New York broadcast back in 1983, and for more than 27 years he poured his heart and soul into the show. Many of the members of our staff began their careers at ‘Live’ with Regis, and were lucky enough to learn from a master broadcaster. Our hearts go out to Joy and his family.”

He also hosted “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?”, “Million Dollar Password” and the first season of “America’s Got Talent”.
