"I can't tell you how excited I am that Regis will be a recurring special guest on our show this season," Ray said in a statement. "Regis has been a close friend of the show and a close friend of mine for years and it'll be a blast having him on the team."
Philbin will appear alongside Ray for the entire hour once a month. He starts the new gig next Monday. In a new interview with USA Today, he said that he couldn't pass up the opportunity. "I'm not gonna say I don't want to do your show!" he said. "I think it's fun. I spent my whole life doing this."
Philbin insisted that he was not retiring when he left "Live!" after 28 years last fall. »
