Regis Philbin named contributor to 4th hour of 'Today'

NEW YORK (AP) — Say good morning to Regis Philbin again!

The veteran daytime-TV host is joining NBC's "Today" as a contributor to the fourth hour, reuniting him with his longtime co-host, Kathie Lee Gifford, who co-anchors the hour with Hoda Kotb (HOH'-duh KAHT'-bee).

Philbin, who has made multiple guest appearances recently, will appear about once a month in his new role, NBC said.

The 83-year-old Philbin hosted "Live! With Regis and Kathie Lee" from 1985 to 2000. He retired from the program in 2011 after nearly three decades.
