Ryan Seacrest bids emotional farewell on his last day as co-host of “Live” alongside Kelly Ripa… Watch it here!

Ryan Seacrest’s departure from “Live With Kelly and Ryan” after six seasons marked an emotional and memorable conclusion. The 48-year-old media figure, who revealed his decision in February, shared heartfelt moments with co-host Kelly Ripa during the final episode.

The challenges of balancing a New York-based show with his residence in Los Angeles, where he also hosts “American Idol,” were cited as logistical reasons for his departure.

Acknowledging the audience’s role in his six-year journey, Seacrest expressed gratitude for the unique bond created by being invited into viewers’ homes daily.

Kelly Ripa, visibly moved by the farewell, reflected on the rapid passage of the six years and likened their relationship to that of siblings. She praised Seacrest’s qualities, humorously mentioning the right to humor him on social media.

The last episode featured US First Lady Dr. Jill Biden as a guest, and Seacrest’s family, including his parents, sister Meredith, and fiancĂ©e Aubrey Paige, attended the broadcast. Clip montages showcased memorable moments from Seacrest’s time on the show, creating a blend of lighthearted and poignant memories.

While bidding farewell to Seacrest marked the end of an era, the show already announced Mark Consuelos, Kelly Ripa’s husband, as the new co-host. Consuelos joined the show at the end of the finale, with Seacrest symbolically passing the baton by handing him his mug.

Ryan Seacrest assumed the role of host in 2017, succeeding Michael Strahan. The morning program has had a rich history of hosts, including Regis Philbin and Kathie Lee Gifford. Kelly Ripa became Philbin’s full-time co-host in 2001, and she has been an integral part of the show ever since.

The finale celebrated the success of six seasons, and though Seacrest’s presence will be missed, the show looks forward to a new chapter with Mark Consuelos as co-host.
