EMMY AWARD WINNER REGIS PHILBIN TO HOST "THE 37TH ANNUAL DAYTIME EMMY(R) AWARDS," TO AIR LIVE, SUNDAY, JUNE 27 ON THE CBS TELEVISION NETWORK

Emmy Award winner Regis Philbin will host THE 37TH ANNUAL DAYTIME EMMY(R) AWARDS, to air live from the Las Vegas Hilton Sunday, June 27 (9:00-11:00 PM, live ET/delayed PT) on the CBS Television Network.

"I am delighted to host the Daytime Emmys this year," said Philbin. "It's going to be a great night with my daytime brothers and sisters, and I hope everyone wins an award this year."

"Regis Philbin is a TV icon," stated David McKenzie, executive producer of the telecast. "As a consummate entertainer, he is the perfect host to capture the energy and excitement of the inaugural Las Vegas-based Daytime Emmys."

"We are ecstatic to have Regis Philbin as the host of the Daytime Emmy Awards," said Herb Granath, Chairman of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. "We were honored to award him the Lifetime Achievement Award in 2008. His continual excellence in the broadcast television medium is a true inspiration to all of us in the industry."

Since Philbin first stepped in front of the camera more than 40 years ago, he has ambitiously tackled talk shows, game shows and even the literary world, with multiple best-sellers to his credit. In May 2001, the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences honored him with a Daytime Emmy as Outstanding Talk Show Host for his syndicated program, "Live with Regis," and another Emmy award as Outstanding Game Show Host for "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire." He and co-host Kelly Ripa received the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Special Class Special for hosting the 2006 "Walt Disney World Christmas Day Parade." In Fall 2009, he broke his own existing Guinness World Record? for Most Hours on Camera, setting a new mark of 16,343 hours accumulated over his illustrious career - a career that was recognized with the Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences at the 2008 Daytime Emmy Awards.

Currently in its 22nd season in national syndication, "LIVE! with Regis and Kelly" originated in 1983 when Philbin created "The Morning Show" for WABC in his native Manhattan. It quickly became the number one show in the market. Kathie Lee Gifford joined him in June 1985, and in September 1988 the program debuted in national syndication and the title was changed to "Live with Regis & Kathie Lee." In 2001, Philbin was joined by Ripa, and the program entered a new era as "LIVE! with Regis and Kelly."

Philbin took his daytime success to nighttime with ABC's ratings juggernaut "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" in 1999. In August 2009, 10 years after making television history, the network brought back a special 11-episode anniversary run of the blockbuster game show with Philbin at the helm.

Following the initial run of "Millionaire" and the $10 million spin-off "Super Millionaire," Philbin returned to primetime as host of the NBC summer program "America's Got Talent." In early 2008, he was tapped by ABC to host the red carpet arrivals show for the 2008 Academy Awards, and later that year hosted "Million Dollar Password," on CBS.

In 2001, Philbin received a TV Guide Award as Personality of the Year, and a Broadcasting & Cable Lifetime Achievement Award. He also was presented with a Crystal Apple Award from then-New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani for his contributions to the New York television industry. Other accolades include the Walter Camp "Distinguished American Award" at Yale University and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Philbin was the 2006 inductee into the National Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame, and later that year was selected by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences to be inducted into the Television Academy's Hall of Fame.

A native of New York City, Philbin is a graduate of the University of Notre Dame and received an honorary doctorate of law degree for his contributions to Notre Dame and South Bend. Regis and his wife, Joy, have two grown daughters, Joanna and Jennifer.

The Daytime Emmy Awards recognize outstanding achievement in all fields of daytime television production and are presented to individuals and programs broadcast from 2:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. during the 2009 calendar year. THE 37TH ANNUAL DAYTIME EMMY AWARDS is a presentation of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in cooperation with the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. The Las Vegas Hilton is the official hotel of the Daytime Emmy Awards. American Airlines is the official airline.

Associated Television International (ATI) will produce the show with ATI President and Emmy award-winning producer David McKenzie serving as executive producer.
