NEW YORK --
Welcome to LIVE, Ryan Seacrest!
Kelly Ripa introduced her new co-host on the show on Monday after a months-long search. The number one daytime entertainment talk show in America has gone by the name LIVE with Kelly as Ripa appeared with dozens of guest co-hosts over the past 11 months.
The longtime host took the time to thank everyone involved in the search process, especially all the guest co-hosts who sat beside her.
Ripa pointed out that the day of the announcement is also her 21st wedding anniversary with husband Mark Consuelos.
"May 1 is a great day for me personally and I think for me professionally," she said. "It just feels like very good karma."
