Report: Michael Strahan Close to Joining ‘Good Morning America’
Michael Strahan just keeps winning.
According to a story via CNN Money, the current co-host of “Live With Kelly and Michael” and soon to be NFL Hall of Famer, is set to add one more gig to his CV when he joins ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
Strahan, the former New York Giants defensive end turned media star, won’t be replacing any individual.
Instead, he’ll be an addition to the top-rated show, popping up in various segments starting at 7 a.m. before shuttling one mile north to the talk show he already co-hosts at 9 a.m. with Kelly Ripa, “Live with Kelly and Michael.”
The ABC News executives who oversee “GMA” have been holding talks with Strahan for months.
Strahan’s role could be announced later this week, the people said. They insisted on anonymity because the news had not been made public by ABC yet.
Due to his exuberant personality, Strahan has been able to forge quite a successful post-NFL career. Wish him all the best.
