Brad Barket/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Regis Philbin is returning to TV. He's set to moderate Fox Sports 1's upcoming talk show, Crowd Goes Wild.
The New York Post reports that the longtime daytime talk show host will lead a panel discussion around the leading sports topics of the day. Crowd Goes Wild will broadcast from New York City, and will air weekdays at 5 p.m. Eastern time.
“We’ve got a nice little panel of people together, a lot of friends,” Philbin told the newspaper. “And if a celebrity like George Clooney comes to town with a movie, we’ll play clips from his movie -- but we’ll also talk to George, who grew up in Cincinnati, about his sports roots, like, if he’s still a big Reds fan."
Philbin initially revealed his upcoming TV plans on ABC's The View in March, where the iconic 80-year-old TV personality was there to welcome Barbara Walters back on the show after her bout with chickenpox and a concussion.
"Fox is starting a sports channel. Everybody is starting a sports channel now, you know, where there's nothing but 24 hours of sports," Philbin said at the time. "Regis is going to have a show on that."
The other panelists for Philbin's new show haven't been revealed yet, but one is an “ex-NFL player,” he said.
Philbin previously hosted ABC's Live! with Regis and Kelly since 1983, when it launched as a local New York City program under a different title. He shared hosting duties with Kathie Lee Gifford for 15 years before Kelly Ripa replaced her in 2001. Philbin left the show in November 2011./>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>
