The search is on for Kelly Ripa's new co-host on "Live!" as Michael Strahan prepares to leave for "Good Morning America," and the rumor mill is buzzing about who will replace him. Strahan's last day is May 13 -- he was originally supposed to stay until September.
One name that keeps coming up is Anderson Cooper, who is friends with Ripa.
On "Watch What Happens Live" with Andy Cohen (who is also rumored to be in the running), the CNN anchor and "60 Minutes" correspondent addressed the gossip when a caller asked if it was true.
"Kelly is the heart and soul of that show and it's going to go on and continue to be great and I wish Michael the best in his new endeavor," he said.
Cooper continued, "Look, I'm very happy at CNN. It would be a dream to work with Kelly, but nobody's offering anything, so ... "
It sounds like Cooper is trying to drop a hint to "Live!" producers.
Tell us: Do you think Cooper would be a good match for Ripa on "Live"?
