Regis Philbin to Host New Show on Fox Sports 1

After retiring from Live! With Regis and Kelly, Regis Philbin is getting back into television with his new role as the host of a sports program on Fox Sports 1.

'I never anticipated going back to sports,' Philbin told Fox News. 'The very first job I did was in San Diego, California, doing a little sports for the news.'

Fox has plans to launch their 24 hour sports channel this summer and Philbin is excited to be involved.

'I have always been a sports fan,' he said. 'I love sports. I really do.'

He's getting back to what he knows best. He would talk sports on 'Live' on occasion but neither Kathie Lee Gifford nor Kelly Ripa cared much for it.

'The women I worked with went, 'oh not again,'' he said. 'But I couldn't help, but talk about it because I really loved it. So anyway this is right down my alley.'

His new show will focus on a panel of guests and is expected to include a celebrity appearance.

'We're going to have some fun in addition to the sports,' he said.

The new channel will be available in summer and you can watch Regis Philbin talk sports on Fox Sports 1 as of Aug. 19, 2013.
