Live with Kelly & Ryan! Kelly Ripa Debuts Ryan Seacrest as Her Co-Host
Ryan Seacrest is back on television, as he has been named as Kelly Ripa’s new co-host!
The show, which will now be called ‘Live with Kelly and Ryan,’ had been out of a co-host for a year.
“Today, the next chapter of the Live story is about to be written,” she told the audience at the top of the show. “Today, my new co-host will officially be joining me on Live. And today is a very good day.”
Before bringing Seacrest to the stage, she began, “I would first like to think all of the men and women who sat next to me co-hosting this past year. Thanks is not a big enough word, but they took time out of their busy schedules and out of their day jobs … we all became family, and they became part of the Live family forever.”
Seacrest is no stranger to hosting, as he has his own radio show, hosted ‘American Idol’ and hosts ‘Dick Clark’s New years Rockin’ Eve’ every year.
The news of Seacrest joining the show has been met with mixed reviews, as some see him as ‘bigger’ than the show.
‘Kelly & Ryan’ airs weekdays on ABC!
