Kelly Ripa Finally Names New Co-Host

According to CNN's Chloe Melas and Brian Stelter, Kelly Ripa has finally decided on a new co-host.

It's been almost a year to the day since Michael Strahan abruptly left Live with Kelly and Michael to pursue a hosting gig with Good Morning America. It became a big scandal when Ripa revealed she only found out about Strahan's departure 30 minutes before it was released by the press.

But now, after months of searching, Ripa is ready to announce who will be sitting with her every morning.

And it's probably someone you know VERY well.

It's Ryan Seacrest!

The former American Idol host will continue his radio shows for iHeartMedia, with ABC building him a radio studio in the same building that houses Live.

Seacrest's role will include on and off-air duties, which will be added to his busy schedule of also hosting red carpet specials for the E! Network.

I'm excited to see how this duo plays off each other...are you?
