FAREWELL

Regis Departs 'Live'

After 28 years, breakfast television will no longer feature Regis Philbin. ABC's longtime host gave his final signoff on Friday's Live With Regis and Kelly. His final hour was star-studded: New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg gave Philbin keys to the city, Tony Danza shouted from the audience "We love you Regis!" and Disney CEO Robert Iger gave Philbin a tribute. Philbin pretaped a heavily scripted segment, which he dismissed as "a little long, but OK," and his cohost Kelly Ripa gave a sentimental speech so emotional that her hands were shaking. Starting Monday, Ripa will host Live With Kelly solo.
