Big news from the world of daytime television! Kelly Ripa‘s new co-host on “Live” is… Ryan Seacrest! (He does have all that extra free time now that American Idol is over.)
Many media outlets broke the news about an hour before Kelly announced it herself.
Last night Kelly posted a short video on Facebook and Twitter saying “We’re going to need a bigger mug” and inviting people to tune in tomorrow for the announcement.
Her previous co-host Michael Strahan left the show last year to work full-time at “Good Morning America.”
She’s had several of co-hosts fill in since. Is Ryan your first choice for her new co-host? Let us know in the comments below.
Here’s the official announcement from this morning and her tease from yesterday.
