Almost a year after Michael Strahan exited Live for a co-anchor gig on Good Morning America, Kelly Ripa has picked Ryan Seacrest as her new co-host.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Shannen Doherty says her breast cancer is in remission.

Kelly Ripa ("Live with Kelly") didn't win her Daytime Emmy nomination for Best Entertainment Talk Show Host on Sunday night, but she'll have company when she tries again in 2018.

Seacrest had a great first day at his new job, and toasted the "new Live!" with Ripa at the end of the show. In addition, Seacrest plans to move to NY full-time to continue his hosting duties. His tremendous success is only matched by his impeccable reputation.

According to CNN, Seacrest's array of on and off-air roles won't be affected by the position. "Plainly said, everyone loves him, and so will our daily viewers". "It's consistently been my privilege and pleasure to work alongside Kelly with all her incredible talents, charm and humor", said Seacrest. With Seacrest joining Ripa that puts them in direct competition with Kelly. And to accommodate his national radio show, a new studio is being built near the Upper West Side location where producer Michael Gelman is in charge. He recently renewed his contract to host red carpet specials for NBCUniversal's E! network, for example.

Seacrest, 42, brings major star power to "Live", having hosted the full run of singing competition "American Idol", which for years was a prime-time ratings juggernaut.

"Thank you for uprooting your life", Ripa added. A third hour of today, long co-hosted by Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb, is likely to remain at its current 10 a.m. roost. Since then, Ripa, who has been a "Live" host since 2001, has had a number of high-profile guests test out for the part. Ripa posted a video of the two coming out onto the stage for the big reveal, where the pair greeted fans and declared how excited they were to be starting this new chapter of "Live".
