Contests on the Kelly and Michael show vary each month. Details for the current contest can be found at Livekellyandmichael.dadt.com. The currently listed is a photo contest titled "Spin into Spring" ending on April 17, 2015.
Live! with Kelly and Michael features Kelly Ripa and former football star Michael Strahan. The show is based around current news and the happenings of their personal lives. Live was originally known as the morning show when Kelly hosted with Regis Phillbin, before his retirement in 2011. The show first reached a national platform when Regis hosted with Kathy Lee, which had more than a 10-year stint on prime time television.
The show has been awarded the Daytime Emmy Award for being one of the most outstanding talk shows and for having the most outstanding hosts. The show has maintained a close-knit feeling throughout the years, which was first based on the producer's home life. This family setting gave birth to the "Host Chat" segment where unscripted talk is allowed typically lasting less than 20 minutes. The show platform is also based around musical performances and interviews with celebrities guests.
Popular features of Live! with Kelly and Michael include specials based around specific times of year such as Halloween and Valentine's Day. There is also a post-Oscars show where the hosts interview the presenters, winners and other attendees.
