Welcome to popular Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a popular Wikipedia page every day.

With 979,059 views on Saturday, 25 July 2020 our article of the day is Regis Philbin.

Regis Francis Xavier Philbin (; August 25, 1931 – July 24, 2020) was an American media personality, actor, and singer, known for hosting talk and game shows. Having been called "the hardest working man in show business", Philbin holds the Guinness World Record for the most hours on U. S. television. His trademarks included his excited manner, his New York accent, his wit, and his irreverent ad-libs.

After graduating from the University of Notre Dame, he served in the U. S. Navy and got his television start serving as a page for The Tonight Show in the 1950s. Philbin gained his first network TV exposure in 1967 as Joey Bishop's sidekick on The Joey Bishop Show. Philbin is most widely known for having been the co-host of the New York City-based nationally syndicated talk show Live! with Regis and Kathie Lee starting in 1988, which became Live! with Regis and Kelly starting in 2001, and continued with former football player Michael Strahan after Philbin's departure in 2011. Philbin debuted and hosted the US version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, Million Dollar Password, and the first season of America's Got Talent.
