Fans of ABC’s syndicated morning staple “Live with Kelly” continue to closely follow the weekly lineup of guest hosts to look for clues to who might be named as the show’s permanent replacement for Michael Strahan.
The lineup just released for next week includes two appearances by Anderson Cooper, whose name has been mentioned as a leading contender from the beginning — even though the CNN anchor has denied he’s up for the job.
Also guest hosting with Kelly Ripa two days next week is actor Josh Gad, and pop singer Nick Lachey caps off the week on Friday.
Here’s the lineup for Aug. 1-5:
Monday, August 1 — Journalist ANDERSON COOPER
Tuesday, August 2 — Journalist ANDERSON COOPER
Wednesday, August 3 — Actor JOSH GAD
Thursday, August 4 — Actor JOSH GAD
Friday, August 5 — Singer and TV Personality NICK LACHEY
“Live with Kelly” is distributed in national syndication by Disney|ABC Home Entertainment and TV Distribution. The show is produced by WABC-TV in New York and executive produced by Michael Gelman.
