Regis Philbin and Kathie Lee Gifford to Reunite on The Today Show?

by at . Comments

How might the potential firing of Ann Curry bring about a reunion between one of TV's most beloved tandems? Well...

Rumors are circulating that if when Curry is let go by The Today Show, her seat will be filled by Hota Kotb, who currently hosts the program's fourth hour alongside Kathie Lee Gifford.

This, of course, would leave an empty chair alongside Kathie Lee... and it might be occupied by Regis Philbin, sources say!

Regis Philbin and Kathie Lee Gifford

Philbin and Gifford, of course, spent years by each other's side on Live! every morning until the latter left in 2001 and was replaced by Kelly Ripa. Regis then retired from the program this year.

NBC "absolutely loves Regis, and want to formally sign him to become a special contributor to Today and work with the network on entertainment specials," an insider tells Radar Online. "If Hoda is chosen to become Matt Lauer's co-anchor, Regis would be the natural choice to replace her."
