High school teacher Richard Curtis co-hosted several episodes of “Live!” alongside Kelly Ripa. And, although Ryan Seacrest was chosen to take over permanently, Curtis’ hosting career is not at an end.
Curtis will take his hosting talents to FOX29’s “Good Day Philadelphia” for the next week.
And, he appears to be right at home.
“Richard is a natural,” praised network news director Jim Driscoll. Driscoll said that one could see Curtis’ “impact” in the classroom as well as on television.
Curtis has since expressed his support for Ripa and Seacrest’s partnership and his gratefulness for the opportunity he had.
Congrats to @ryanseacrest who became the luckiest man in showbiz (again) and got announced as @kellyripa's new cohost on @livekelly. I just wanted to give every person who has been following my journey a huge thank you for all the love and support you've shown. This has been an experience of a lifetime, and don’t plan on ending this here. Please stay tuned everyone, this is just the beginning. Thanks for being awesome. Summer break is in a month so I'm available to fill in still @livekelly @gellman @livekelly 🙂
