Ryan Seacrest is Kelly Ripa's new co-host on 'Live,' sources say

Twitter

Personally, we'd be fine if Ripa just hired teacher Richard Curtis, who did a number of memorable shows with her after winning a search for a one-off host.

Ripa told People previous year that finding the right co-host is like a "puzzle" and that she always meant to find a "partner".

Ripa broke the news on various social media platforms by posting a video of herself sipping from a "Live with Kelly" mug with a question mark drawn on it. "Tune in tomorrow", she says.

A lot of viewers are surprised that it took Kelly Ripa nearly one year to find a replacement for Michael Strahan after he left the show for "Good Morning America" in 2016.

Ryan Seacrest will be Kelly Ripa's new permanent co-host on daytime "Live With Kelly" chat show, CNN reported Monday. They are willing to wait until they find the right person.

Ripa started out on the show in 2001 as co-host with longtime star Regis Philbin, who retired in 2011 and was replaced by Michael Strahan in 2012. For now, she said she's thankful to everyone who helped her out. This is likely to rule out Fred Savage, Jerry O'Connell, Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper, the report noted.

Strahan announced his departure from Live! in April 2016, taking the audience - and Ripa - by surprise when he revealed that he was moving to Good Morning America. Will that new co-host come from the ranks of those who have sat next to Kelly Ripa? This may have been an oversight, ' " adding that "sometimes when you are so comfortable with somebody, you may not give them the same consideration as somebody you're not as comfortable with - a certain formality falls away". She described finding the right co-host as being "like a puzzle", or "like an equation, an algorithm".

"We really didn't set a timeframe for ourselves", she said.
