Michael Strahan started his full-time gig at Good Morning America on Tuesday, September 6, after his controversial exit from Live With Kelly back in May. To enter, viewers should send a video pitch detailing why they have what it takes to join Ripa on the show, as well as a short bio.
While the search goes on for a permanent co-host to replace Michael Strahan on ABC's Live with Kelly, Kelly Ripa has opened that empty chair to the general public...sort of.
A number of names have been thrown around as to who will be Ripa's full-time co-host, with Anderson Cooper, Fred Savage, Rob Lowe and Alec Baldwin mentioned as possible frontrunners. She left the show for four days immediately after, only to return with a carefully worded speech about "respect in the workplace".
Kelly Ripa is healthy, happy and drama-free.
The 44-year-old Super Bowl champion was given a big welcome Tuesday by his new colleagues Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos, less than four months after his final Live broadcast aside Ripa.

A source revealed: Kelly realized her issue wasn't really with Michael, but the network. Now that Kelly Ripa is executive producer of her own show, it seems quite possible that Kelly will extended this summer's Live guest-hosting schedule at her whim.
ABC had released a amusing debut video for Strahan, which had an excited young actor with a gap between his front teeth walking down the street as New Yorkers said hello to him. He added: 'If there's one thing I know about you, you love the show, you love the staff, you love your fans and I love you'.
Kelly Ripa's diva demands are out of control.
