Former television host and Notre Dame alumnus Regis Philbin will have a funeral service and be buried on the university campus, which he frequently visited and continued to enthusiastically support long after graduating.

University spokesman Dennis Brown confirmed Sunday that Philbin, who died Friday of natural causes, will have a funeral service at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart and be buried at Cedar Grove Cemetery on campus. The date has not been set.

Philbin graduated from Notre Dame in 1953 and often returned for football games, pep rallies, banquets, concerts and other events.

In October 2002, he invited another famous talk show host, Larry King, to campus after learning that King had never been to Notre Dame Stadium. Philbin said he insisted on giving King a tour of the "greatest college campus in the world."
