(Newser) – Regis Philbin may be exiting the talk show world, but before he (finally) goes, he's leaving his fans with a "personal thank-you" in the form of a memoir, due this fall. Though currently untitled, the book will reflect on his decades-long television career and include stories about Live! With Regis and Kelly co-host Kelly Ripa, her predecessor Kathie Lee Gifford, and such celebrities as Jack Nicholson, George Clooney, and Jerry Seinfeld, according to the publisher.
