Seth Meyers Frontrunner to Be Kelly Ripa Co-Host on Live!

Truth rating: 10

By Daniel Gates


Seth Meyers is the frontrunner to become Kelly Ripa’s co-host on “Live!,” a source close to the situation confirms to Gossip Cop.

Ripa has been looking for a permanent co-host since Regis Philbin said goodbye to “Live!” last November.

Following Meyers on the wish list are former football star Michael Strahan and singer Josh Groban.

We’re told all the parties involved in the decision-making process feel Meyers has stood far ahead of his competitors during the various times he’s already co-hosted.

“Live!” will make an announcement about Ripa’s new co-host in September.

News of Meyers being considered the top pick was first reported by Showbiz411.
