Kelly Ripa set to announce new co-host for 'Live'

Kelly Ripa announced her new permanent co-host this morning, naming veteran broadcaster Ryan Seacrest as her new co-host in the newly re-christened "Live with Kelly and Ryan".

"We're going to need a bigger mug", Ripa captioned the video, adding several clues in the form of hashtags: "#TuneInToLive #BigAnnouncement #LiveKellyCohost".

In case you forgot, a year ago Strahan announced he would be leaving the morning show so that he could take on a full time position at Good Morning America.

Netanyahu Threatens To Skip German Talks If FM Meets 'Breaking The Silence'
He said: "I have been in this country so often and have a lot of friends, and it wouldn't change my relationship with Israel". He had also told German public television station ZDF that a decision to cancel the meeting would be "extremely regrettable".

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

Numerous celebrities have filled in as co-hosts with Ripa over the past year, including Jerry O'Connell, Fred Savage and Andy Cohen.

Ripa has co-hosted the show since February 2001, following longtime co-host Kathie Lee Gifford's departure the year before. As you can see from the clip (below), the host not only took a sip from a mug bearing a big question mark below her name but also addressed the camera, telling viewers, "Tune in tomorrow".

Call of Duty: WWII Release Date and Story Details Announced
A tradition that remains, however, is the early-November launch, as Call of Duty WWII will be released on November 3, 2017. Going back to grounded, fast-action gameplay, players will re-discover the battlegrounds of the Second Great War .

It's officially Live! With Kelly and Ryan! "Trust me", she says. ABC and Ripa chose a co-host through a different procedure this time around. Hopefully, the new co-host will last a bit longer than the four-year term served by the former National Football League player. In the months immediately following, he was open about his desire to take time to explore his options, suggesting that a "live" format would likely be key to whatever he did next. The plan is to build a radio studio for Seacrest at WABC-TV New York, where "Live" originates.

So who will be the lucky guy or gal starting the morning on-air with Ripa? Yup, the hosting King is heading to NY in order to fill the big shoes Michael Strahan left behind. "Add in an experienced production team and a successful 30-year franchise, and you have the ideal combination".

Though close pal Anderson Cooper may have been Ripa's first choice to replace Strahan (a non-starter given his CNN contract), Seacrest was not far behind.
