He had previously announced his retirement from the show in January, but said then that he would be leaving sometime in the fall.
"Kelly will begin trying out new co-hosts just like 11 years ago when I did the same thing and found her," Philbin said Tuesday morning on Live.
Live! has been in a farewell season for Philbin since he announced his departure, celebrating favorite moments from the 79-year-old's 28 years on the program.
