9780062109750: How I Got This Way

Emmy Award-winning television star Regis Philbin has entertained millions of Americans every weekday morning for the past 28 years hosting, in various incarnations, the popular show "Live! with Regis and Kelly". Referred to often as the hardest working man in television, he has rubbed elbows and egos with countless personalities. His innate curiosity and wit has enabled him to learn great life lessons from the most legendary and formidable of them. Now in a most unique memoir Regis shares all that these experiences have taught him about achieving success and happiness-and about maintaining both for as long as he has! It is the ultimate gift to his fans as he departs the show in November of 2011, closing one very long and rich chapter of his life to begin yet another. From an awkward first meeting with Jack Nicholson to early encounters with a young Ronald Reagan and a shy, as-of-yet-unknown, eighteen-year-old Steven Spielberg, Regis reveals the many influences that have shaped his life philosophy and career. Recounted here are stories about chance meetings, interactions and full-blown adventures with Bing Crosby, Donald Trump, Don Rickles, Dave Letterman, Dean Martin, Johnny Carson, Jack Paar, three legendary Notre Dame coaches - Frank Leahy, Ara Parseghian, and Lou Holt-Joe DiMaggio, Jerry Seinfeld, Cary Grant, Bill Cosby, Walter Winchell, John Severino (his most notorious and life-changing boss), Marine Majors Rankin and Flake, George Clooney, George Steinbrenner, Charles Grodin, Howard Stern and others. Of course, there are also chapters devoted to his co-stars of many years Kelly Ripa and Kathie Lee Gifford, and one that is nothing less than a moving love-letter to his wife of 41 years, Joy Philbin. Invaluable advice closes each chapter with the trademark gratitude and humility that has made Regis Philbin such a national treasure. Inspiring anecdotes, laugh-out-loud tales and awkward celebrity moments make this so much more than a memoir-it truly is Regis' personal guide to living a positive life. Marked by same tongue-in-cheek humor and candor Regis has always displayed, this book will serve and endure as a reminder of why America has related to and loved this one-of-a-kind television legend for so many decades.

About the Author:

Regis Philbin is a cultural icon having remained in front of the television camera for more than 50 years! Regis began his talk show career in San Diego at KOGO in October of 1961. He joined Joey Bishop as his sidekick in 1967, then went on to A.M. Los Angeles which rose from the bottom to the top of the ratings for the seven years it aired (from 1974 through 1981.) In 1983 he began his Live Show with Regis on WABC in NYC. He was joined by Kathie Lee in 1985 and the show was nationally syndicated in 1988. In 2001, Regis was joined by Kelly Ripa and the program entered yet another new era as Live! with Regis and Kelly. The show in its various incarnations has remained one of the most watched television shows in America. Regis' is the face millions of viewers have woken up to on weekday mornings for nearly three decades. Not only has he reigned supreme in daytime, but he also took his success to nighttime when he hosted the ABC juggernaut Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, its spinoff Super Millionaire, and later NBC's America's Got Talent as well as the CBS revival of Password, Million Dollar Password. In addition to hosting the red carpet arrivals at the 2008 Academy Awards for ABC, Regis has also hosted the 37th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards. Philbin has won four Emmy Awards and is the proud recipient of a Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, a Broadcasting and Cable Lifetime Achievement Award, a TV Guide Award as Personality of the Year, the Walter Camp Distinguished American Award at Yale University, and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In 2006 Regis was inducted into the National Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame and later that year was selected by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences to be inducted into the Television Academy's Hall of Fame. Philbin is also the 2009 Guinness World Record holder for Most Hours on Camera, with now more than 16,600 cumulative hours under his belt. In addition to his success in the talk show and game show worlds, Regis is also a bestselling author having previously published two books of his own and two books with Kathie Lee Gifford. A native of New York City, he is a graduate of the University of Notre Dame and the recipient of an honorary doctorate of law degree for his contributions to Notre Dame and the city of South Bend. Regis lives in New York with his lovely wife Joy.
