Philbin Extends Disney Contract

Nov 5, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Regis Philbin has extended his contract with the Walt Disney Co. and will continue hosting “Live with Regis & Kelly” until 2011, the New York Daily News reports. Terms of the deal weren’t disclosed but the contract is expected to inhibit Philbin’s range of movement to other networks considerably, keeping the legendary host on projects for Disney and its broadcast network, ABC. In recent years, Philbin has worked on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” and last season hosted CBS’ “Million Dollar Password” game show.
