Ryan Seacrest joins Kelly Ripa on 'Live'


Ripa teased her big announcement the night before sharing a photograph on Instagram of her holding a mug that said, "Live with Kelly &?" and then opened the show by calling Monday a "very good day". Facing the camera, she addressed the new host, saying, "Don't be nervous, you're going to be great".

"Today, the next chapter of the "Live" story is about to be written", Ripa said.

Seacrest, who had been one of the guest co-hosts, called Ripa "a dream broadcast partner". In a behind-the-scenes video, Ripa told Seacrest, "Let's kill it!" ahead of the show, and she said she was "inexplicably nervous".

The choice makes a departure from the selection of relative TV novice, former National Football League star Strahan, five years ago as Seacrest is one of the most seasoned live hosts working in television after years of Idol, Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve, his E! red carpet coverage, his radio show and a number of other live hosting gigs.

The seat next to Ripa was coveted by dozens of entertainment and news industry A-listers.

Ripa was reportedly blindsided by the news with Strahan only telling her half an hour before the news leaked in the press.

She has since been chemistry testing with countless actors and personalities each week, including Jerry O'Connell, Jimmy Kimmel, Andy Cohen and husband Mark Consuelos. So, while he christens his newest post on Monday morning, you may be wondering: what will happen to Seacrest's radio show?

Seacrest's hiring is a coup for "Live" in that producers won't have to break in somebody new to the audience, said Bill Carroll, a veteran consultant and expert on the daytime television market.
