NEW YORK (ABC) -- Kelly Ripa announced on Wednesday’s “Live” that her new co-host will be … you?
“Now you have the chance to prove it,” Ripa said about reading how easy her job is online and on social media.
Essentially, fans will get the chance through “Live with Kelly & You” to be her co-host for the day. Fans have till Sept. 20 to submit on the “Live” site.
The big news comes one day after she teased her fans by saying a “big announcement” was coming. The co-hosting news wasn’t what fans thought, which was that she was revealing her new celebrity co-host.
Ripa has been hosting “Live” alongside the likes of guests Christian Slater, Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen since former co-host Michael Strahan made his full-time move to “Good Morning America.” His last day on “Live” was May 13 and he started on “GMA” this past week.
In April, the news broke that Strahan would be moving to “GMA” and the NFL Hall of Famer said he was excited about the “opportunity to be able to bring unique stories and voices to the audience.”
Strahan, a few days later, joked that he’s not going anywhere and that he’s always open to come back and guest host “Live” with Ripa.
“To all our viewers … you still continued to give us your eyeballs and watch this show,” he said in April. “Thank you guys … I can’t ask for better fans.”
