Live with Kelly Still Needs a Permanent Co-Host

Regis Philbin has been off of daytime television for seven months and Kelly Ripa still does not have a permanent co-host. I know Michael Gelman and the rest of the Live with Kelly crew is looking for the perfect co-host, but this is getting ridiculous because they are not even in a hurry to find one. It has gotten to the point that Live with Kelly is milking its lack of a stable co-host for all the publicity it’s worth.

On Monday, the show announced Live’s Coast-to-Coast Co-Host Search. Viewers will be able to submit 60 second videos about why they should be Ripas co-host from now until June 29. The 10 semi-finalists will be announced on July 16. Later that week, the 5 five finalists will be flown to New York City and given the opportunity to be Ripa’s co-host for a day.

For more details about the contest, go to the Live with Kelly website.
