The announcement comes as the search for a new host continues following Michael Strahan‘s departure earlier this month. Similar to the on-air audition process employed after the departure of Regis Philbin in 2011, the show has brought in a parade of guest co-hosts in search of a permanent partner for Ripa.
Jimmy Kimmel, “Empire” star Jussie Smollett, Cedric the Entertainer, “Hawaii Five-0” star Daniel Dae Kim and “World News Tonight’s” David Muir have also appeared as guest co-hosts.
