Regis Philbin has signed a new four-year contract to stay on Live With Regis And Kelly — thanks to faithful readers of The National Enquirer!

With Regis' contract due to expire in May, his fans flooded our offices with more than 20,000 letters voicing their support and requesting our popular "Keep Regis" T-shirt.
The TV legend was so touched that he said at the time: "I'd like to thank all your readers for their support and I want you all to know I'm fine."
