The Reagan Foundation was pleased to welcome Regis Philbin to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library on Monday, October 29th, 2012 for a lecture and book signing for his book, How I Got This Way*.
In his entertaining memoir, Regis Philbin looks back at his years in show business. How I Got This Way is filled with stories of lessons learned with extraordinary teachers including Ronald Reagan, David Letterman, Donald Trump, George Clooney, Jack Nicholson and many more. Whether he’s revealing what really drove him “bonkers” on the set of Seinfeld, how he survived the first known bomb scare on live TV, what Jack Nicholson said about his beautiful leading ladies during their guys’ night out together, or poignant memories of his last moments with his idol and dear friend, Jack Paar, Mr. Philbin packs every page with his signature heart, wit,
dynamic energy, and gratitude for everything life has brought him.
Regis Philbin has been entertaining television audiences for more than fifty years – with nearly 17,000 hours on television - in daytime reigning as a beloved morningshow host, in nighttime as an Über game-show host, and also as a fixture on national and local late-night shows. He is most widely known for Live! With Regis and Kathie Lee and its subsequent incarnation Live! With Regis and Kelly; Who Wants to Be a Millionaire; Million Dollar Password; and the first season of America’s Got Talent. Regis lives in New York and Connecticut with his lovely wife, Joy.
