NY Post: Regis Philbin Eyeing New Talk Show

The New York Post‘s Page Six reports that outgoing “Live with Regis and Kelly” host Regis Philbin is having discussions with syndicators about launching a new talk show.

Philbin has been in preliminary talks with syndicators, including Harpo and Sony, about hosting a talk show similar to “Live” but with more news coverage, insiders said.

Page Six also reports that Kelly Ripa is none too pleased with the possibility that her former co-host could soon become a competitor.Philbin announced he would be leaving the show in January.
