Welcome to Live with Kelly & Ryan.

After a year-long search, Ryan Seacrest is Kelly Ripa‘s new co-host on the long-running daytime talk show.

The 42-year-old officially landed the daytime gig after Michael Strahan unceremonioulsy departed for Good Morning America last year.

Seacrest beat out a long list of A-list talent that included Anderson Cooper, Andy Cohen and Jerry O’Connell.

The job comes with an east coast move for Seacrest, who has been based in Los Angeles for two decades.

While the 42-year-old will live most of the week in NYC, he’ll now do his morning radio show from a new studio in Manhattan. In addition, he’ll continue his red carpet coverage for E!, his New Year’s Eve show, as well as executive produce programs like Keeping Up with the Kardashians and Shahs of Sunset.

“I’ll be [in New York City] during the week and then at the end of the week the show usually isn’t on on Fridays, so I’ll fly back to Los Angeles and work from there,” Seacreat told People. “And I have an iHeart studio here in the building, so immediately after Live on television, we go live on the radio.”

We’re exhausted just hearing about all his jobs.
