A rep for the popular talk show recently revealed their search for a new co-host is going smoothly, but they haven't quite found the right person yet.
“We’re happy with how things are going so far with the co-host search," the spokesperson told FOX. "There is no timeline for the selection of the new co-host.”
Kelly and Michael on Live!
Pop culture expert Cate Meighan has a different theory. “Looking back on the history of Live!'s replacement of co-hosts they really do seem to take their time,” she said. “However, Kelly's fury at her treatment by ABC during Michael's departure has hardly been a secret. It's very possible that the network has been more concerned with their treatment of her than they've been with seating a co-host beside her. After all, if they lose her, then they have no show and it wouldn't matter who was chosen.”
Since Michael's exit, more than 40 temporary co-hosts have appeared on nearly 100 episodes of the morning series. It looks like we will have to wait a little bit longer to see who will eventually join Kelly for good!
