Ryan Seacrest joins Kelly Ripa on 'Live'

Share

Almost a year after Michael Strahan left his seat next to Ripa on her weekday talk show, she announced that former American Idol host Seacrest is her new co-host.

A source said of the move: "Live gives the former American Idol host a new daily platform on network television".

Seacrest has become ubiquitous at the TV hosting game since establishing himself with American Idol back in the early aughts, and his quest for world domination shows no signs of slowing down.

Seacrest is widely known - and well compensated - for his ability as a live TV performer. "@KellyRipa crushes every morning. one of my favourite people ever #livekellyryan", he wrote.

Now it's "Live with Kelly and Ryan". His tremendous success is only matched by his impeccable reputation. "Plainly said, everyone loves him, and so will our daily viewers", Ripa said in a statement. Ripa pointed out that the day of the announcement is also her 21st wedding anniversary with husband Mark Consuelos.

When Michael Strahan left Live with Kelly and Michael over a year ago, it was nothing if not controversial. "Today, my new co-host will officially be joining me on Live and today is a very good day".

With American Idol having wrapped up past year, it only makes sense the long-time host would find yet another television outlet. He's also started a personal clothing line, Ryan Seacrest Distinction, and a coming skin care line is in the works.

The well-known broadcaster was introduced by Ripa on Monday morning as her new co-host with giant new sign that read, "Live!".

Seacrest is expected to continue his other media jobs such as his nationally syndicated weekly radio program, hosting red carpet specials and producing reality shows. In recent years, he has handled ABC's "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve", where he covers the ball drop in Times Square. Though he lives in Los Angeles, Seacrest will move to NY permanently to work on Live.

To join "Live", which is based in New York, Seacrest will re-locate from his longtime home in Los Angeles to Manhattan, CNN said.

So what do you think of the announcement? Was this a boring choice?
