"LIVE" Heats Up Morning TV with A-List Celebrities, Favorite Guest Co-Hosts and a Rousing Fourth of July Celebration

NEW YORK, NY - July 2, 2012 - Top morning talk show "LIVE! with Kelly's" July lineup sizzles with superstar guests, a festive Fourth of July show and the exciting finale of "LIVE's" "Coast-to-Coast Co-Host Search."

Host Kelly Ripa kicks off the month in style when she and her guest co-host, Grammy-nominated musician and star of the upcoming reality series "Married to Jonas," KEVIN JONAS, host a star-spangled July 4 edition of the show. Throughout "LIVE's Fourth of July Party," the duo will invite the in-studio audience to compete for prizes in "LIVE's Independence Day Games," a wacky array of crazy contests. Guests BLAKE LIVELY and CODY SIMPSON also will join in the fun.

All month long, an A-List lineup of guests will stop by, including JOHN TRAVOLTA, SALMA HAYEK, GLENN CLOSE, ANNE HATHAWAY, VINCE VAUGHAN, WILL FERRELL and RAY ROMANO. Plus, favorite guest co-hosts will share the Host Chat desk with Kelly, such as MICHAEL STRAHAN, CARRIE ANN INABA, SETH MEYERS, MARK CONSUELOS and MARK FEUERSTEIN.

Mid-month, "LIVE" will showcase the finalists of "LIVE's Coast-To-Coast Co-Host Search." Thousands of viewers submitted video entries demonstrating why they should have the chance to join the stellar ranks of Kelly's guest co-hosts. During the week of July 16-20, the five finalists will fly to New York for a week of competition, with the winner co-hosting the show with Kelly on July 24.

Summer nights are perfect for romance, and "LIVE" wants to give some lucky couples the opportunity to rekindle their passion with "LIVE's Date Night Makeovers." The week of July 9-13, five couples will be given head-to-toe makeovers and sent out on the town. Each day, viewers will hear their stories, see their transformations and get the scoop on their special New York City date nights.

Summer 2012 marks the return of "LIVE's" popular "Grilling with the Stars," a weekly cooking competition in which celebrities go head-to-head to see who has the best grill recipe. In July, the celebrity chefs will include CAROLINE MANZO of "Real Housewives of New Jersey," and actresses KRISTEN JOHNSTON and CARLA GUGINO, all vying for the grand prize of a $25,000 check to their favorite charity, plus "LIVE's" marvelous Golden Grill trophy.

Emmy Award-winning talk show "LIVE! with Kelly" is distributed in national syndication by Disney-ABC Domestic Television.
