'Live' has been looking for a partner for Ripa since spring, when Michael Strahan left to join 'Good Morning America.'

She may be a little bleary-eyed, but Fox News' Megyn Kelly has been tapped to co-host the morning talk show Live With Kelly alongside Kelly Ripa on Wednesday, Nov. 9, the day after the presidential election, it was announced Wednesday.

It will be Kelly's first time as a co-host. Live has been looking for a partner for Ripa since last spring, when Michael Strahan left to join ABC's Good Morning America.

It's an intriguing booking. Although Fox is anxious to keep her, Kelly will soon become a free agent able to look for other broadcasting jobs.

Kelly has been one of the most high-profile TV journalists of the presidential campaign, the target of barbs from Donald Trump and, on Tuesday night, from Newt Gingrich.
