(LOS ANGELES) -- Regis Philbin and Mary Hart are both leaving their longtime jobs as the hosts of Live! With Regis and Kelly and Entertainment Tonight, respectively, but they're both firm in their plans not to retire from showbiz. "Regis doesn't want to use the R word -- retirement -- and neither do I," Hart tells The Hollywood Reporter. "I want to do something different. It may not be on television." Hart says when she caught up with Philbin on Tuesday, they even reminisced about when they worked together for a short time on a 1981 morning variety series on NBC.
Philbin told the Hollywood Reporter he hasn't decided when to leave Live! With Regis and Kelly. He says he'll hang it up either at the end of August, or as the network prefers, at the end of November sweeps.
Mary Hart's final ET sign-off will be May 25. "I am not looking forward to that last day," she explains. "How do you say goodbye to an audience and to my family at ET?"
