Regis Francis Xavier Philbin (August 25, 1931–July 24, 2020) was an American media personality and occasional actor, known for fronting various talk and game shows. Appearing on television since the late 1950s, Philbin was often called (somewhat tongue-in-cheek and alternately attributed to James Brown) "the hardest working man in show business" and held the Guinness World Record for the most time spent in front of a television camera. Philbin officially retired from television in 2011. Regis attended the University of Notre Dame, where he graduated.
