(CBS) Regis Philblin is bidding adieu to "Live! With Regis & Kelly" this month, but his co-host Kelly Rippa will be sticking around for a while.

Deadline.com reports that Ripa has inked a new five-year deal with the show, taking her contract through 2017.

This year marks Ripa's 10-year anniversary on the "Live With Regis & Kelly." The former soap opera star's contract comes days before Philbin, 80, officially signs off from the syndicated show, putting an end to his 28-year-run. David Letterman, Jimmy Fallon, Donald Trump and former "Live!" host, Kathie Lee Gifford are among the guests slated to make an appearance during Philbin's hurrah on Nov. 18.

Until a new host is named, Ripa, 41, will sit beside a series of guest co-hosts, including comedian Jerry Seinfeld, slated to appear Nov. 21-23.

Despite Philbin's departure, Ripa and Philbin were still going strong as a team, even scoring a Daytime Emmy for best talk show hosts earlier this year.

Aside from hosting the show, Ripa heads up the New York-based Milojo Productions with her husband, actor Mark Consuelos.
