NEW YORK (PIX11) – Legendary talk show host Regis Philbin may soon be back on television.

Philbin, who bid viewers adieu in 2011 when he left his seat on LIVE with Regis and Kelly,  may return to host the daytime version of “Who wants to be a millionaire.”

Meredith Vieira who currently hosts the daytime game show recently announced that she will be leaving at the end of the season.

According to the New York Post, although he hasn’t been offered the gig, Philbin is thinking about.

It was over 10 years ago when Reeg hosted the primetime version of ‘Millionaire’ which turned into a ratings phenomenon for ABC.
