Regis talks exclusively with NewsCenter 16 one day after signing off of LIVE

He's known all over the world and holds the world record for most air-time on television. Everyone knows him by one name, Regis.

The king of day-time television jumped on a plane and is in South Bend, just a day after he signed off for good on his final episode of "Live with Regis and Kelly".

Our very own Jeff Jeffers sat down with him one-on-one to talk about his final days on the show. "Father Jenkins was there, and he gave me this beautiful statue," Regis said. "Lou Nanni, Joe, they were all there. It was so nice for them, because Gelmin was booking people that he thought I would like to see on my show and so it was wonderful for him to come out. Ya know, it was just great. "

He also talked about his new book, "How I Got This Way." It's about 30 people he has met in his life that inspired him. Three of them are former Notre Dame football coaches including Frank Leahy, Ara Parseghian and Lou Holtz. Regis goes in depth about how all three helped mold him through the years.

He was at the Hammes Bookstore Saturday afternoon signing copies of that book. So many people were there, that the line went all the way to Notre Dame Avenue.
