Ryan Seacrest Leaves Co-hosting Gig At "Live With Kelly And Ryan" After Six Years

Seacrest confirmed his departure from the show in a statement and expressed gratitude towards Kelly Ripa.

Kelly Ripa will miss co-hosting with Seacrest, as they had become a daily morning routine together.

Ryan Seacrest became a permanent co-host on the show in May 2017 after a long search.

Seacrest also continued to host American Idol and produce "On Air with Ryan Seacrest" for KIIS-FM while co-hosting with Ripa.

Seacrest's absence from the show in late 2021 raised concerns about his health, but his publicist stated that he was not facing any significant health issues.

Mark Consuelos, Kelly Ripa's real-life husband, will be taking over Seacrest's co-hosting duties.

Ryan Seacrest's departure marks the end of a significant chapter in the history of "Live with Kelly and Ryan."

Fans of the show will miss the chemistry between Seacrest and Ripa, and it remains to be seen who will fill his shoes.
