Seth Meyers Is Frontrunner For ‘Live With Kelly’ Co-host Position!
According to a new report, the search for Kelly Ripa‘s permanent co-host on ‘Live With Kelly’ has been narrowed down to three!
The three in the running for the role, which was vacated by Regis Philbin last November, include Seth Meyers (Saturday Night Live head writer), Josh Groban (singer), and Michael Strahan (former NFL star).
Showbiz411 is however reporting that Seth, 38, who will be co-hosting for the entire next week, is indeed the front-runner. There are even rumblings that the show producers might announce him as the permanent co-host as early as next Friday.
So what does this all mean for his position and role at SNL if he gets the gig? Well Seth is reportedly planning to step down from his position as head writer on the show if he gets hired, though he would still return to do the “Weekend Update” segments.
