Veronica and Vanessa Merrell to Host ‘LIVEtember’ with Kelly and Ryan

  • by

YouTube and traditional TV are colliding this week on ABC’s “Live with Kelly and Ryan.

The show is back for their 31st season and are kicking off in a big way!

For the whole first week, hosts Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest will be joined by digital stars.

This is one of the first of its kind initiatives called “LIVEtember.”

Every day this week, the show has been going live on one of its social media platforms giving viewers a glimpse into what happens behind the scenes and before the live taping starts.

We’ve all wondered how the backstage looks, where Kelly Ripa gets her hair and makeup done, how many people are around them prepping them for that day’s show, and so much more.  All of those questions will be answered!
