Ryan Seacrest Joins Live With Kelly; To Remain With KIIS-FM Morning Show
Ryan Seacrest has been tapped to become Kelly Ripa’s new co-host on the nationally syndicated Live With Kelly television program.
Seacrest will be relocating to New York, but will continue to host the morning show for iHeartMedia CHR 102.7 KIIS-FM Los Angeles and his nationally syndicated On Air with Ryan Seacrest and American Top 40. Variety reports that a new studio for Seacrest will be built at the studios of WABC-TV where Live With Kelly & Ryan, as the television show will now be called, originates.
To make the logistics of the time overlap between the television show airing from 9-10am and the first hour of the radio show, the first hour in Los Angeles will mostly be pre-recorded or led by co-host Sisanie.
