Details about Ryan Seacrest has announced that ‘Live with Kelly and Ryan’ will be his final season, Mark Consuelos has been appointed as the new co-host
Seacrest and Ripa made the announcement on Thursday’s “Live with Kelly and Ryan” morning show.
“I’ve decided to make this my final season as a co-host,” Secrest explained, calling the decision “bittersweet.”
“You’ve progressed from a buddy to a family member. “You’re like family to us,” Ripa explained. “I’m really proud of you, and I’m rooting for you all the way.”
Seacrest first committed to three years on the show, which he then increased to six because he enjoys hosting.
“I hold you in high regard. “I adore you,” Seacrest stated of Ripa. “I enjoy the fact that we get to talk every day. Nothing like this can be found on television. This show is only possible due of an extraordinary group of people.”
This spring, Seacrest will step away from the show. What about his replacement? Mark Consuelos, Ripa’s husband, will take up the role.
Consuelos has appeared on the show numerous times with Ripa throughout the years.
Seacrest, one of the world’s most well-known broadcasters, initially appeared on the hit show in 2017, when ABC began looking for a replacement for Michael Strahan.
Since taking the position, he’s been doing double – and occasionally triple – duty as host of “American Idol” and his widely syndicated radio broadcasts for iHeartMedia.
“Live” is headquartered in New York. Seacrest currently resides in Los Angeles.
