On Monday, April 6 Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan will leave their New York studio for the White House’s Jacqueline Kennedy Garden. Ripa and Strahan will broadcast “Live” from the White House on the day after Easter. The hour will include an interview with First Lady Michelle Obama on plans for the White House Easter Egg Roll, scheduled for later that day as well as her “Let’s Move!” campaign, now in its fifth year. This is the first time “LIVE” will be live from the White House for the full hour.
