Kelly Ripa teases 'big announcement' Monday regarding permanent co-host

The time has finally — and we do mean finally — come. After a year of rotating celebs, Kelly Ripa tweeted a video Sunday, teasing that there's a big announcement coming on Monday's "Live With Kelly" about who will be taking the seat next to her as her new permanent co-host.

Ripa posted the short video, showing her sipping from a cup with the words "Live With Kelly?" The caption reads: "We're going to need a bigger mug. #TuneInToLive #BigAnnouncement #LiveKellyCohost."

Wearing a giant grin, she says, "Tune in tomorrow... trust me."

A parade of potential candidates have waltzed through and planted themselves beside since her Michael Strahan exited the show last April to join "Good Morning, America." Among those said to be in the running are Fred Savage, Jerry O'Connell, Anderson Cooper and Ripa's husband Mark Consuelos.
