Live! with Kelly returns with brand new co-host on September 4

After months of anticipation and endless speculation, on September 4 at 9 a.m. ET/PT on CTV, viewers will finally find out who will be Kelly’s new co-host.

A whole new era begins for Live! with Kelly on Sept. 4, when Ripa walks into the LIVE studio, joined by her new partner. Live! with Kelly airs Monday to Friday on CTV at 9 a.m. ET/PT (visit to confirm local broadcast times).

Live! with Kelly debuted following the departure of longtime host Regis Philbin. In the following months, 59 different men and women sat next to Kelly at the co-host desk, top personalities from every area of broadcasting and entertainment, including CTV’s own eTalk co-anchor Ben Mulroney, who co-hosted Live! with Kelly twice, once in Banff and then again in New York. One individual from that immensely talented group has been tapped to fill one of the most coveted jobs in television.

Ripa will kick off the new season on Monday, Sept. 3, acting as a solo host for the first time, and the following day, Sept. 4, marks the first day the new co-host team officially helm the show together.

Stopping by as guests on Sept. 4 are Golden Globe® Award-winning actress, Claire Danes (Homeland) and Season 11 winner of American Idol, Phillip Phillips.
