New co-host for 'LIVE with Kelly' to be revealed Monday morning

Ryan Seacrest will join "Live" as Kelly Ripa's co-host, jump-starting a new era in the morning television ratings race.

Seacrest's move into the seat next to Ripa comes almost a year after Ripa's former co-host, Michael Strahan, left the Disney-distributed show for an anchor slot on ABC's "Good Morning America".

Ryan Seacrest is the new co-host of "Live" withKelly Ripa. which means a coast-to-coast move for the former "American Idol" host.

Since then, Ripa's guest co-hosts have included Andy Cohen, Anderson Cooper, Jerry O'Connell, and Fred Savage.

"Tune in tomorrow, trust me", she says in a video, which was posted along with the tweet.

It looks like Kelly Ripa has finally found her "Live!".

He said that Kelly and Childress , however, rekindled their relationship that October after she attended one of his concerts. Kelly would have a concert in a nearby state, Childress would disappear to unite with her lover", the lawsuit claims.

Stung by Strahan's sudden announcement a year ago, Ripa later reflected on having been taken unawares, telling People magazine a month later, "There's a part of me that can say, 'Okay, I understand".

Seacrest joked his friends guessed everything from him getting engaged to coming out of the closet when he told them that he had a big announcement. It could very well be another ex-athlete like Michael Strahan or even a female co-host like former "Today Show" host Tamron Hall.

Strahan left to be an anchor of ABC's "Good Morning America" last May. Now, it'll be Ripa unrolling the welcome mat for the new addition. She said she wanted someone to work with who was "comfortable" as her co-host.

For his first-ever Live episode as a permanent co-host, Ryan chose a tan blazer and cream colored trousers. The TV personality has tons of celebrity guests in the past months who are vying to be her next partner in the morning talk show.

"Live" airs weekdays at 9 a.m. ET on ABC.
