On today's LIVE WITH KELLY AND RYAN hosts Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest announced that the show will be leaving behind the winter chill of the Northeast and heading to the beautiful Islands Of The Bahamas for four shows from the newly updated Atlantis, Paradise Island, airing Feb. 5-8.
With the spectacular ATLANTIS resort as the backdrop, the "Live" broadcasts will showcase the stunning, natural beauty, unique experiences and rich culture that the chain of Bahamian islands has to offer.
"We're thrilled to have the opportunity to bring 'Live' back to The Bahamas," said Michael Gelman, executive producer, "Live with Kelly and Ryan." "Atlantis has proved to be an ideal setting for the show. The broadcasts are going to look terrific, and it'll be fun to give our viewers a taste of the tropics when it's the dead of winter throughout most of the country."
"'Live' has always had a home at ATLANTIS and our 7500 Bahamian associates are excited to welcome Kelly and Ryan to Paradise Island to share our #BahamasatHeart spirit with their audience and our guests. This will be an exciting week for all - the turquoise waters, the Bahamian sounds and flavors, all our new experiences and the great chemistry of the hosts - it's the ultimate warmth in the middle of winter," says Audrey Oswell, president and managing director of Atlantis, Paradise Island.
"With some of the clearest water on earth, The Bahamas is the number one destination in the world for #nofilter posts and we can't wait to have Kelly and Ryan showcase our natural beauty and authentic culture with their viewers," said Joy Jibrilu, director general, Bahamas Ministry of Tourism and Aviation.
