CTV on the Go: Kelly Ripa lands a big co-host... literally, Huntress aims for 'Arrow,' 'The Listener' goes LIVE!
CTV on the Go
Here's a daily rundown of the latest buzz from your favourite CTV shows, because if you’re on the go, you still need to know!
Kelly Ripa lands a big co-host… literally
Kelly Ripa has landed a big co-host, literally. Michael Strahan, a former defensive end for the National Football League's New York Giants and one of favourites to land the gig, has done just that, according to a report from TMZ.
59 co-hosts had sat in the chair made famous by Regis Philbin following his departure from "Live!" nine months ago, but it was Strahan who rose above the rest with an outlandish charisma and buoyant flair that perfectly complimented Ripa’s.
He may have worn the number 92 in his playing days, but "Live!" producers made it known that he was number one on their list of co-hosts, edging out a list of frontrunners that included Seth Myers, Josh Groban and Nick Lachey.
With his boyish grin and signature tooth gap, Strahan was one of the most electrifying players in the National Football League for the majority of his 15-year playing career, winning a seemingly elusive Super Bowl ring in his final season.
Fun Fact: Strahan stands at 6’5 and weighs 275 pounds. Ripa stands at 5’3 and weighs in the neighbourhood of 110 pounds.
Huntress aims for "Arrow"
Oliver Queen, be warned: Huntress is coming to Starling City.
"Arrow," which debuts Wednesday, October 10 at 8 p.m. ET on CTV Two this fall, has cast Australian actress Jessica De Gouw as Huntress, another crossbow wielding, cape-wearing, butt-kicking crime fighter who wants to right the wrongs of her family.
"Arrow," which stars Canadian-born Stephen Amell in the title role, tells the story of a vigilante attempting to return Starling City to glory.
