On Monday, Kelly Ripa announced her new “Live with Kelly” co-host — Ryan Seacrest.
Seacrest, 42, formerly hosted Fox’s “American Idol” and already does business with ABC through his role as host of “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve.”
Since last May, when former co-host Michael Strahan left the program, Ripa has had several celebrity fill-ins, such as Andy Cohen, Anderson Cooper, Neil Patrick Harris, Jerry O’Connell, and Fred Savage.
Seacrest, who has been one of Ripa’s fill-in co-hosts several times, will reportedly host the show four days a week in New York, and spend the remainder of the week in Los Angeles.
Ripa went on Twitter Sunday to preview her big announcement in several tweets:
