Regis Philbin says he's retiring from his show

NEW YORK (AP) - Veteran broadcaster Regis Philbin says he's retiring from his weekday talk show.

Regis, 79, made the announcement at the start of Tuesday morning's "Live With Regis and Kelly," which he has hosted for a quarter-century, most recently sharing hosting duties with Kelly Ripa.

Philbin said he would be stepping down from the show around the end of the summer, but he didn't specify a departure date.

Disney-ABC Domestic Television distributes "Live! With Regis and Kelly."
