Currently in her 12th year with the show, Ripa took the lead on "LIVE" during the search for a new co-host. Fifty-nine different men and women shared the co-host desk over a nine month period.

On September 4, 2012, legendary NFL star and sports broadcaster Michael Strahan was named the permanent co-host of the newly-rechristened show.
