Regis Philbin visits Cincinnati for book signing

NORWOOD, OH (FOX19) - Legendary TV personality Regis Philbin was in Cincinnati on Wednesday, discussing and signing copies of his new book, How I Got This Way.

Philbin visited the Joseph-Beth Booksellers in Rookwood Wednesday evening.

In his new book, Philbin shares his secrets to success and happiness as he has learned them from his innumerable celebrity encounters, friendships, and his relationship with his loving wife and family. Philbin recently retired from his daytime TV show, Live! With Regis and Kelly.

FOX19's Sheila Gray was able to speak to Philbin, and he shared with her what he'd like to do next, saying, "I'd love to do a variety show, mainly because I love the way Dean Martin did his show years ago. I don't know if it can be done now, first of all TV is down on variety, they want murders. But, that was a great entertainment show and I'd like to do something that entertains people."

There will be more with Regis Philbin on the FOX19 Morning News Thursday.
