As Ryan Seacrest Prepares To Leave Live, Kelly Ripa Weighs In On Upcoming Transition Between Him And Mark Consuelos

Ryan Seacrest’s final days on Live with Kelly and Ryan are upon us, with the co-host set to appear for the final time next to Kelly Ripa on Thursday, April 13. The longtime morning show already had an excellent replacement lined up when they announced Seacrest’s exit after six years — her husband Mark Consuelos — who has filled in for the American Idol host several times on the show. Ahead of the swap, Ripa shared her thoughts on what it’s going to be like to have Consuelos transition to that role full time.

Mark Consuelos will officially take over the chair next to his wife on Monday, April 17, when the name of the syndicated talk show will be rebranded as Live with Kelly and Mark. Kelly Ripa spoke to what else will change when Ryan Seacrest makes his exit, telling People she doesn’t foresee a whole lot of drama. The longtime host said: 

Nothing will really change, just the different name on the mug. … Ryan is like my — I always say is like my brother, but he’s also like my oldest child. So you know, it’s gonna be seamless.
