Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest present the syndicated morning chat show Live with Kelly and Ryan.
The Live show concept, executive produced by Michael Gelman, has run under numerous hosts since 1983 locally on WABC-TV in New York City and nationwide in 1988. It is now produced by WABC as of 2016.
After nearly a year of hosting with guest co-hosts, Ripa was paired with former NFL star Michael Strahan. That edition of the show lasted 12 years and was renamed Live with Regis and Kelly for another decade.
After a year-long syndicated co-host hunt, it was announced on May 1, 2017, that Ryan Seacrest would succeed Strahan as the new permanent co-host. Seacrest has also joined the show as an executive producer.
What is Ryan Seacrest’s Salary on Kelly and Ryan?
According to Forbes, Ryan Seacrest’s salary on Kelly and Ryan was estimated to be around $15 million a year.
When Ryan was announced as a guest on Kelly Ripa’s morning talk show in 2017, Forbes did some research.
Despite the fact that Ryan’s actual compensation is unknown, Forbes estimated that Kelly was earning north of $15 million per year when Ryan was hired and that Ryan’s inclusion would “cost the program a big buck.”
They further claimed that Live was “the most-watched syndicated talk program during the coronavirus pandemic” and that Ryan “earned over $10 million” for it.
