‘Live! With Kelly’ Finally Has a Co-Host

When Regis Philbin stepped down from ‘Live! With Regis and Kelly’, the people who are behind his show immediately began searching for someone to fill his seat. While Regis is obviously irreplaceable, someone has to take the job. His counterpart Kelly Ripa has done a phenomenal job handling the show with whichever co-host comes her way. Well it looks as though they have finally found a permanent host to sit next to her.

The producers of ‘Live! With Kelly’ say that Kelly Ripa will announce her new co-host as s/he joins her for the first time on stage on September 4. The day before the big reveal, Ripa will reportedly host the show by herself for the first time. Guest hosts have included Seth Meyers, Peter Facinelli, Josh Groban, Nick Lachey, and more. Rumor has it that the host filling the empty seat permanently is someone we have seen on the show many times.

By the time the show names its new host, there will have been 59 guest hosts since Regis left the show. It will have been just over 9 months since Philbin stepped down. He stepped down at age 80, after hosting the show for more than 28 years. It will be interesting to see who has the courage to take such an icons place.
