He died of natural causes a month shy of his 89th birthday, his family told People magazine. News in a statement.
Philbin is best known for his 23 year stint as the host of Live! with Regis and Kathie Lee and later Live! with Regis and Kelly.
Of course, that was hardly his only job.
Philbin's television career began in 1961 with a local, self-titled talk show.
Disney delays blockbuster films due to COVID-19 pandemic
It seems that Disney has now taken the film off its slate indefinitely, with no word on when or how the film will one day be released.
Throughout the 1970s and early 1980s, Philbin worked with names like Ruta Lee, Sarah Purcell, Cyndy Garvey, Mary Hart, but it wasn't until 1985 when Live with Regis & Kathie Lee came along and the ratings skyrocketed.
Live! With Regis and Kathie-Lee became a morning show staple for millions across America during its run from 1985 until Kathie-Lee's departure 15 years later. Kelly captioned a sweet photo of herself and Regis, as well as current Live! co-host Ryan Seacrest, 45, posing with Disney icon Mickey Mouse which you can see here. The next year, Kelly Ripa came in to replace Gifford, and they worked together for a decade before Philbin made a decision to retire from the show. "I wish I didn't have to wait till I was in my late 50s before the good part of my life started in this business", he told 20/20.
He said his No. 1 career regret was that he had worked so many unheralded years on local programs in Los Angeles and NY before getting national exposure in 1988.
While a cause of death wasn't reported, the report said Philbin underwent an angioplasty in 1993 and triple bypass surgery in 2007. He shared Amy and Daniel with Catherine Faylen, his first wife, and Joanna and Jennifer with Joanna, his second wife.
