ABC is apparently going big with Kelly Ripa's new morning co-host: CNN reports that Live With Kelly is about to become Live With Kelly and Ryan—yes, Ryan Seacrest. Ripa will announce the replacement for her most recent co-host, Michael Strahan, during Monday's show. The former American Idol host lives in Los Angeles, but he also has a home in New York and is expected to move there for the show. Live airs at 9am in many markets, which means it will go head to head with former Fox host Megyn Kelly's NBC show when that launches in the fall. Seacrest, 42, is expected to keep his national radio show for iHeartMedia. (Here are 5 facts you may not know about Seacrest.)
