Kelly Ripa's New Co-Host Won't Be Announced Until the New Season Premieres

8/21/2012




KELLY RIPA'S
new permanent co-host has been chosen, but won't be announced until the new season premieres next month.

She will host the show ALONE when it returns on Monday, September 3rd, and her new co-host will make his debut the next day, on the 4th.  (It's probably safe to assume it will be a GUY.)

Kelly has had 59 different guest co-hosts since REGIS PHILBIN left last November.

Last we heard, "Saturday Night Live" star SETH MEYERS was the "frontrunner", with former NFL star MICHAEL STRAHAN and singer JOSH GROBAN also among the finalists.  But that was just speculation.
