Kelly Ripa offers viewers a chance to co-host ‘Live,’ announces more co-hosts

NEW YORK, Sept. 8 (UPI) — Live host Kelly Ripa is offering viewers of the show a chance to sit in the co-host chair with a new contest, Live with Kelly and YOU.

Ripa has been hosting the show with a revolving list of celebrity guest hosts since Michael Strahan traded his seat on Live for one on Good Morning America earlier this year.


Empire‘s Jussie Smollett and Ripa’s husband, actor Mark Consulos, are reportedly leading the pack of frontrunners for the permanent job.

Other potential co-hosts include Fred Savage, Alec Baldwin, and Rob Lowe.

Co-hosts for the week of Sept. 19 include Busy Phillips, Chris Pratt, Smolllet and Consuelos.

Strahan was officially welcomed as a full-time GMA co-host on Tuesday.
