Has Kelly Ripa found her new co-host?

After the Live host teased a "big announcement" will be made on Wednesday's edition of the morning talk show, viewers' ears naturally perked up that she might be naming her new partner-in-chat nearly four months since the May departure of Ripa's former co-host Michael Strahan, who officially began his full-time gig on Good Morning America this Tuesday morning.
