NEW YORK (AP) — Regis Philbin’s new sports talk show premieres next month with the launch of cable channel Fox Sports 1.

Befitting a program debuting in 2013, “Crowd Goes Wild” will weave back-and-forths with viewers into the broadcast. Producers even hired a social media correspondent.

And hosting all this is Philbin, who turns 82 six days after the premiere.

Executive producer Michael Davies, who worked with Philbin on “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire,” insists the octogenarian fits in just fine with a company known for attracting younger audiences.

Davies says: “We’re going to frankly have a lot of fun with Regis’ struggles with social media.”
