Regis Philbin retires from daily TV

Longtime southwestern Connecticut resident and national celebrity Regis Philbin said goodbye to his television viewers this morning on his last day as the co-host of "Live! With Regis and Kelly."

The Greenwich resident is calling it quits after 28 years on the show.

Regis was dry-eyed, but co-host Kelly Ripa teared up during the show.

A replacement co-host has not been named yet.
