NEW YORK, Sept. 6 (UPI) -- Regis Philbin says he will tape his last episode of the morning chat show "Live with Regis and Kelly" in New York on Nov. 18.

Philbin, 80, announced months ago his intent to retire from "Live" but did not specify when his last day would be until Tuesday.

Although no replacement has been named, TMZ said "Survivor" host Jeff Probst and comedian Howie Mandel are in the running to join Kelly Ripa on the program as co-host.
