Regis Philbin To Undergo Heart Surgery

Notre Dame Alum and popular TV host Regis Philbin will undergo heart surgery this week.

Regis made the announcement Monday morning on "Live With Regis and Kelly".

The long-time entertainer says he has classic symptoms; chest pains and shortness of breath, and that he underwent several tests before doctors recommended a bypass.

Philbin's hoping for an angioplasty, but he says there are several arteries that need to be "cleaned out.”
