Michael Seth Gelman (born August 4, 1961) is the executive producer of Live! with Kelly and Michael (formerly Live! with Regis and Kathie Lee, Live! with Regis, Live! with Regis and Kelly, and Live! with Kelly). He also occasionally takes small roles on television, appearing in two episodes of Kelly Ripa's ABC sitcom Hope and Faith.

Gelman grew up in the Chicago suburb of Highland Park, Illinois. While earning a degree in broadcast production management from the University of Colorado School of Journalism, Gelman worked for the U.S. Ski Association covering pre-Olympic trials all over the country as a cameraman, field producer and editor. Gelman's most important internship came during the summer of his junior year at WABC-TV in New York which is the station which produces Live! with Kelly and Michael.

Gelman has been parodied on The Dana Carvey Show by Stephen Colbert, and on Saturday Night Live by Chris Kattan and Rachel Dratch as a flamboyant, ambiguously gay character.

In 2000, he married Laurie Hibberd, a television personality originally from Canada. They have two daughters, Jamie and Misha.
