One of morning television's most beloved duos may be sharing the screen again in the near future.The New York Daily News is reporting Regis Philbin may join the "Today Show" as a contributor in the morning program's fourth hour, which is currently hosted by Hoda Kotb and his former "Live" co-host Kathie Lee Gifford.
"It's no secret that Regis and Kathie Lee have an incredible spark, and fans love the TV nostalgia," an unnamed source told the Daily News. "But Regis and Hoda also have a special chemistry. He loves joking with her and they have a great comfort level."
The 83-year-old TV icon has appeared on the "Today Show" several times recently and the source says a deal could "formalize what he's already been doing."
According to the New York Post, Regis and Kathie Lee are also scheduled to co-host the Greenwich Village International Film Festival's Changemaker Gala on June 6th, where they will honor UNICEF Goodwill Ambassadors Harry Belafonte and Mia Farrow.
"Live With Regis and Kathie Lee" aired on ABC from 1985 to 2000, when Kathie Lee left and was replaced by Kelly Ripa. Regis left the show in 2011.
