Once dubbed “the hardest working man in show business” and breaking the Guinness World Record for the most hours spent on American television, Regis Philbin was unarguably extremely successful throughout his career. He is most known for hosting the game show, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire and Live! With Regis and Kelly.
Philbin worked in television until his dying day. He passed away at the age of 88 years old due to a heart attack. Doing what he loved every day is what kept Philbin living a long life. Hearts broke across America and in the show business industry at the time of his death, especially those of his four children and his wife, Joy Philbin.
