‘LIVE with Kelly and Ryan’ Episode Guide (July 19): Queen Latifah; Sofia Carson; Steve Aoki Performs

On today’s all-new episode of the syndicated “LIVE with Kelly and Ryan,” actress Queen Latifah visits the program to talk about her work in the comedy film “Girls Trip,” which hits theaters this weekend. Next, actress and musician Sofia Carson opens up about reprising her role of Evie in the film sequel “Descendants 2.”

Plus, DJ Steve Aoki performs from his forthcoming album “Kolony.”

Currently in her 15th year with the show, Kelly Ripa took the lead on “LIVE” during the search for a new co-host. Fifty-nine different men and women shared the co-host desk over a nine month period. During that time, she helped to build the show’s key demo ratings and kept the momentum going until a new host was named.

On May 1, 2017 — nearly a year after Michael Strahan departed from the series to contribute to “Good Morning America” — Kelly announced veteran broadcaster Ryan Seacrest as the co-host of the newly re-christened “Live with Kelly and Ryan.”

Seacrest joins Daytime Emmy Award-winner Ripa as co-host and a fellow executive producer on daytime’s longest-running, No. 1 entertainment talk show. A staple of modern American pop culture and media, and a household name from his decades on the radio, on television and as an Emmy-winning producer, Seacrest also has been a longtime friend of “Live,” with many guest appearances and multiple co-hosting stints.

“Live with Kelly and Ryan” is distributed in national syndication by Disney-ABC Home Entertainment and TV Distribution. The show is produced by WABC-TV in New York and executive produced by Michael Gelman, Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest.
