Kelly Ripa has something to say about finding the best replacement for Michael Strahan

The search continues for Kelly Ripa’s new co-host, and she is speaking out about the selection process.

PEOPLE caught up with Ripa at the 19th Annual Super Saturday NY event for Ovarian Cancer Research Fund, and she dished about what’s going on at “Live! with Kelly.”

Recently, Ripa has been entertaining a revolving door of guest co-hosts until they find a full-time replacement, and it’s something she thinks fans of the show are actually enjoying.

“It’s fun, it’s energizing,” she said. “It’s what we do best. And I think that it’s been a blast. I love it. I know our production team loves it, and I know the audience loves it.”

Potential replacements for Strahan, who left the show in May, include, Andy Cohen, Anderson Cooper and Fred Savage. Mario Lopez, Rob Lowe and Jeff Gordon were also rumored to join the show, but their chances seem to have fizzled out.

“The decision is such a big decision,” she said. “It’s so beyond just me. Of course, I think that it’s really the audience loves a co-host search. […] Do I know who I click with? I make it my job to click with everybody. So, I’m only as successful as the person sitting next to me.”

Ripa also said that so far, she has enjoyed the experience working with a different guest co-host each week.

“The great thing about the co-host search is that it highlights people and their strengths,” she revealed. “And that’s what’s so good about it.”

And, as long as “Live!” fans love it, they will continue to work with the guests until a full-time replacement is found.

“I guess until the audience gets tired of it, which hasn’t happened yet,” she said about working with the guest co-hosts. “We love it. I have to say, we have a policy that we only allow people who are positive and who have a great energy in the building. And we’ve been so lucky we’ve had such good experiences. People are very willing to do it.”
