Kelly Ripa to Announce Ryan Seacrest As New "Live" Co-Host


After a year long search, Kelly Ripa is set to announce the new co-host for ABC's Live! later this morning.

It's official -- iHeart's own Ryan Seacrest has been tapped for the position.

[I honestly thought it would be Anderson Cooper!]

But Seacrest is actually a no-brainer, when you think about it.

From American Idol to New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, to his hit radio show On Air with Ryan Seacrest, the guy has all the hosting experience in the world.

What do you think of the news?
