Ryan Seacrest and Kelly Ripa say goodbye, shed tears on Ryan’s last day as ‘Live’ co-host

After six seasons, Ryan Seacrest has officially said “Seacrest, out!” to Live With Kelly and Ryan, after his final show aired this morning.

For both Seacrest and his co-host Kelly Ripa, it was an emotional show with plenty of tears shed.

In February, the 48-year-old media personality announced he was departing the syndicated morning talk show, calling the decision “bittersweet.” Seacrest resides in Los Angeles, where he also continues to host American Idol, so hosting the New York-based Live was often a challenge.
