Biography of Regis Philbin: Kathie Lee to Millionaire
Born August 25th, 1931 in the Bronx, New York, Regis Philbin is now one of the most recognizable faces in television history. He started his career behind the scenes of both radio and television, but soon his talent shone through and he got his big break in the 1960s. Eventually, he became the sidekick on “The Joey Bishop Show,” and this opportunity led to a number of other hosting gigs through the ‘70s. His on-screen talent was apparent, and so he was brought in a number of times to save failing morning shows. One of these became the immensely popular, "Live! With Regis and Kathie Lee," and Philbin has since set the record for most hours spent in front of a camera. In this video, WatchMojo.com learns more about the life and career of Regis Philbin.
