He announced his departure on Thursday’s episode of Live! With Kelly and Ryan,” Kelly said: “Working alongside Kelly over the past six years has been a dream job and a highlight of my career.”

I will miss our mornings together. She has been an amazing partner, friend and confidant to me.

Additionally, I would like to thank Michael Gelman and the entire crew – we have made memories that will last a lifetime, met some of the most remarkable people and been given the warmest welcome into the homes of so many viewers across the country.

The journey has been memorable, and now I am delighted Live With Kelly And Ryan to pass the baton to Kelly’s ‘real’ husband, Mark.”

Since 2001, Ripa has hosted “Live,” first with Regis Philbin and later with Michael Strahan, as well as working with a rotating roster of guest hosts.

Initially signed on for a three-year contract, Seacrest has stayed on for the past six years as co-host.
