Loving tributes to Regis Philbin began pouring in on social media shortly after his death was announced on Saturday.
David Letterman’s first show after the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks featured two guests: Dan Rather and Regis Philbin. Rather became emotional, while Letterman and Philbin engaged in a somewhat more lighthearted conversation, establishment a blueprint for how to return to late-night entertainment in the dizzying wake of that tragedy.
Regis and Kathie Lee decided to play tourist for a day and check out some of New York City’s top midtown destinations. See their antics at a wax museum, diner and an ice bar.
KLG and Hoda are getting in the TRYDAY Friday spirit by testing out the latest cookie flavors for fall from Nestle Toll House, hot cocoa and harvest apple. Regis joins the ladies to try out the treats, and Kathie Lee finds she’s a big fan.
Regis Philbin has visited TODAY several times throughout the years. Here’s a look back on his best moments on the show.
