live with kelly new cohost 'Live with Kelly's' new co host to be announced when season premieresSince the departure of Regis Philbin from “Live with Regis and Kelly” last November, remaining host Kelly Ripa has welcomed 59 men and women to sit next to her and host the show. But a permanent new co-host has finally been chosen — and it is from that group of 59 co-hosts, the show announced Monday (Aug. 20).

On Sept. 4, 2012, Ripa will be joined by her new partner and a new era will begin for “Live,” which has been airing in some format, and under a variety of names, since 1975.

Ripa will kick off the new season of “Live” on Monday, Sept. 3, where she will solo host for the first time ever, and the next day the new team debuts. The guests that day include actress Claire Danes of “Homeland” and “American Idol” winner Phillip Phillips.

Who do you think it’ll be, Zap2it readers?
