On Wednesday and Thursday of this week, AC360 anchor Anderson Cooper will join ABC syndicated talk show Live! alongside his friend, Kelly Ripa, reports Brian Stelter in his newsletter.
It has been floated that Cooper is a frontrunner to join the Live! as Ripa’s cohost, replacing Michael Strahan, who left the show earlier this month to join ABC’s Good Morning America.
When it was mentioned during an appearance on Fox News, Cooper coyly remarked, “I’m always open to new opportunities.”
As Cooper told his friend (and, it’s worth noting, Ripa’s) Andy Cohen, “It would be a dream to work with Kelly, but nobody’s offering me anything.”
