NICK JONAS JOINS KELLY RIPA
AS GUEST CO-HOST ON “LIVE! WITH REGIS AND KELLY”
FRIDAY, JANUARY 8, 2010
NEW YORK, NY – Nick Jonas is best known as a member of one of the most successful bands of all time … and he’s now striking out on his own with a brand-new project, Nick Jonas & the Administration … but on Friday, January 8, 2010, he’ll be part of a duet as he joins talk show host Kelly Ripa as guest co-host of “LIVE! with Regis and Kelly.”
Although Jonas Brothers hosted the 2009 Teen Choice Awards, this will be Nick’s first time taking on hosting duties in a talk show format. Among the guests he and Ripa will welcome will be actor Zach Braff, star of the ABC comedy “Scrubs” and actress Marion Cotillard from the film “Nine.”
After a two-year-long wild ride that saw Jonas Brothers skyrocket to fame with albums that raced up the charts, sold out tours, awards galore and a box office smash 3-D concert film, Nick Jonas chose to forgo a vacation and step back into the studio. His new project, Nick Jonas & the Administration, matches him with an “A-Team” of musicians, and their first album will debut on February 2, 2010. Their debut CD, “Who I Am,” radically expands the borders of Nick’s musical ambitions, with ten strikingly soulful new songs, all written or co-written by Nick.
The Nick Jonas & The Administration Tour will kick off in Dallas on January 2, 2010, and will feature songs from the new album as well as some surprise cover songs and a handful of Jonas Brothers songs.
“LIVE! with Regis and Kelly” is executive produced by Michael Gelman, and is distributed by Disney-ABC Domestic Television. Produced by WABC-TV in New York, “LIVE! with Regis and Kelly” airs every weekday morning in more than 200 markets across the country.
