Is Regis Philbin Getting a Talk Show on Fox Sports 1?
Television isn’t the same without Regis Philbin gracing the airwaves each day, but it looks like he could return as a talk show host soon. According to Sports Business Daily, Philbin is in talks with Fox Sports to host a The View style sports show.
Fox declined to comment on the rumors, but sources say Philbin would serve as the main host of a show that would look like a sports version of "The View," with Philbin serving in the Barbara Walters role as the part-time host. Philbin is a known sports fan, and sources said the show would be a sports show, as opposed to a hybrid entertainment-and-sports show.
