LIVE! With Kelly And???….The new co-host will finally be revealed on Sept. 4 when Kelly Ripa will be joined by her new partner. Joining the duo as guests that day will be Claire Danes and 2012 American Idol winner Phillip Phillips. Since longtime host Regis Philbin left the show last November, 59 guest co-hosts have taken a seat next to Ripa, and Disney-ABC Domestic Television says one of them has been tapped for the new gig. Ripa will host the show solo for the first time the day before the big announcement. Philbin, who created the show, retired at age 80 after more than 28 years at the helm. Ripa joined the show in 2001.
