NATAS taps Philbin for lifetime honor

TV host to receive award at Daytime Emmys

Regis Philbin has been tabbed for a Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. He will receive his plaudits at the Daytime Emmy Awards on June 20 at the Kodak Theater.

Philbin has been an on-air personality for 40 years and co-hosts New York-based morning chatshow “Live With Regis and Kelly,” which, including changes in show name and co-hosts, is in its 20th year of syndication for ABC Domestic Television.

Said NATAS prexy Peter Price: “Regis Philbin has perfected the unscripted, spontaneous banter that has now become a staple of the talkshow genre. Dozens of shows have tried to duplicate it over the years but no one does it better than Regis.”

Philbin raised his primetime awareness in 1999 when he hosted the gameshow “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire,” which became a huge hit for ABC. Returning to the nighttime airwaves, he’s been selected to emcee upcoming CBS gameshow “Million Dollar Password,” from FremantleMedia North America. Skein is likely to premiere in the summer.

Daytime Emmys will be broadcast on ABC.
