TV Land Awards to Honor Regis Philbin in New York

At this year’s TV Land Awards, the first held in New York City, broadcasting icon Regis Philbin will receive the Legend Award.

The awards will take place April 10 at the Jacob Javits Center, and debut on the channel April 17.

“Regis Philbin is an adored television icon,” said Larry W. Jones.  “A native New Yorker, he has given a slice of the city to all of his loyal viewers.  TV Land is thrilled to have an opportunity to honor him.”

Earlier this month, Philbin, 79, announced his retirement from Live with Regis and Kelly. He is planning to stay with the program through the summer.
