Kelly Ripa makes a big announcement

On Tuesday’s episode of “Live with Kelly,” Kelly Ripa teased a big announcement that would happen the following day.

Coming off the heels of Michael Strahan’s debut on Good Morning American on Tuesday, we all wondered, is Kelly going to announce a new co-host?

Is she going to announce the date a new co-host will be announced?


Well, it’s a cute announcement, but it’s not what we expected.

The team at Live has launched a promotion called “Live with Kelly & You,” wherein anyone can apply for a chance to host the show with Kelly for a day.

Cute, but why?

We had a few theories:

  1. They’re buying time while they wait for Anderson Cooper to get off political duty
  2. They’re buying time because they don’t have any good options yet
  3. They’re actually doing this as a massive casting call, hoping to find some untapped talent and possibly tap an unkown for the co-host position
  4. They’re just nice and they have no ulterior motive (yeah right)

We also wondered what type of person they would take for this type of opportunity, i.e. someone with hosting experience, or just some cute fan?

We’ll have to wait and see.

What do you think of the promotion?
