When Regis Philbin announced that he’d be leaving Live! with Regis and Kelly back in January, fans hoped there would be a change of heart. But on this morning’s season premiere, the man who has hosted this program for 28 years revealed that his last day would be November 18.

It was also announced that a revolving group of hosts would fill his seat until a permanent replacement can be found.

Back in January, co-host Kelly Ripa said, “It has been a pleasure and privilege and a dream come true and I wish I could do something to make you change your mind. I love listening to you every day.”
