Regis Philbin Co-Hosts Again with Kathi Lee
When the Today show needed a temporary co-host for Kathie Lee Gifford to fill in for Hoda Kotb, they called on Gifford’s former hosting partner Regis Philbin.
Gifford, 58, made the announcement on Monday’s Today after she had dinner with her former co-host and his wife, Joy, over the weekend. “We just pick up where we left off,” Gifford said. “We’re just going to let him show up and let the sparks fly. Should be fun!”
She reunites with his former “Live! With Regis and Kathie Lee” co-host on Wednesday, some 12 years after the two parted ways.
Philbin left Live! in November after 28 years on the show. He later said he left over contract issues. His full time replacement has yet to be named.
The fourth of Today airs weekdays at 10/9c on NBC.
Are you excited to see Kathie and Rege back together?
