Young & Free Michigan Spokester Erin Winters is among the top 20 finalists to sit in the co-host chair next to Kelly Ripa during one episode of Live with Kelly!
The “Live with Kelly and You” Co-host Search Contest solicited videos from aspiring talk show hosts throughout the United States and Canada. The first entry from Winters was selected as one of the top 40 entries among the thousands of videos submitted. Once in the top 40, Winters was asked to submit a second video with a “How To…” theme. The Live with Kelly staff then narrowed down the contest entries to 20. Winters was one of the lucky participants to be selected.
Winters and Young & Free Michigan are powered by Michigan First CU, based in Lathrup Village, Mich.
“My dad encouraged me to enter the contest and, on a whim, I decided to give it a shot,” said Winters. “Serving as the Young & Free Michigan Spokester has truly helped me leverage my creativity and personality when on camera. I’m hoping to bring that energy and excitement to New York and Live with Kelly.”
Finalists were announced this week on Live with Kelly and the online Facebook voting phase has started. She now needs credit union support through votes so she can move into the top 10 and ultimately secure the co-host chair.

Young & Free is a young adult marketing program, developed by Currency Marketing, that has helped credit unions in the United States and Canada close the decade-plus age gap in the credit union industry. One credit union in each state or province can license the program which hires a young adult “spokester” who is empowered to showcase the credit union difference and provide financial education through public appearances, social media and an online presence.
