“A Special Edition of 20/20 – Regis Philbin: The Morning Maestro with Katie Couric” will air Thursday Nov. 17 at 8pmET/PT, the night before Regis signs off from “Live!”.

From a day in the life walking in his footsteps, to a nostalgic trip to his boyhood haunts in the Bronx, including a touching surprise at his high school, Couric has a behind-the-scenes look at the life he has know for 28 years – and one he’s leaving behind.

Couric continues the planning of her own syndicated daytime show “Katie” which will be distributed by ABC launching next September.
