‘Live with Kelly and Ryan’ Made a Major Change to the Morning Show This Week

Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest are welcoming a brand-new member to the Live with Kelly and Ryan team. This week, the co-hosting duo introduced their new announcer for the morning show: media personality and radio host Deja Vu!

On Thursday and Friday, the producers of Live shared behind-the-scenes clips featuring the new announcer introducing the episodes of the show. After she revealed the date, she stated, “And now, here are Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest!”

During today’s backstage footage, the 50-year-old television personality and her 45-year-old co-host opened up about how excited they were for Deja Vu to join the team. “It’s so much fun watching you say our names because I know it’s our cue,” Seacrest said in the clip before Ripa added, “As you know change happens glacially around here. So, I’m excited.”

Many of the show's fans also joined in welcoming Deja Vu on social media. One user wrote, “By the way, LOVE your new announcer: dynamic and all-around excellent!” while another added, “Love the new intro!! Good energy!! Awesome!!”

The entertainer even shared the exciting news on her personal Instagram account, featuring a video of herself entering her booth on set. “Guess who's in the studio now?!” she captioned the post. “Whoohoo! Announcing for @livekellyandryan.”

No word on if this is will be a permanent or temporary gig for Deja Vu. However, by the look of her set-up, it seems like she’ll be sticking around the popular morning show for a while.

Welcome to the show, Deja!
