Michael Strahan Confirms He's In Talks To Join 'Good Morning America'
Michael Strahan, one half of Live! With Kelly & Michael, will likely be joining ABC’s Good Morning America in a part-time role.
Michael Strahan Joining 'GMA'
Amid speculation that he would be joining the ABC morning show, Strahan decided to clear the air with Live! fans during Wednesday’s show. "The big news is that I'm gonna be on GMA now," he admitted.
Strahan went on to explain, "So what is so surprising is I had a meeting, and we talked about the possibility there. Then I went to see Captain America with Samuel L. Jackson, and I get out of screening and I check my messages and I'm on Good Morning America.”
Live! Is No. 1 For Strahan
In addition to co-hosting Live! with Kelly Ripa, Strahan also works for Fox Sports during football season. Already stretched thin last year due to the two commitments, Strahan admits that it would be a difficult task to juggle all three. He reassured fans that if he does end up part-time on GMA, Live! will be his number one priority.
"I don't think I could do it every day. I have a lot going on. I have to be smart about it," he said. "I just want everyone to know and you to know that no matter what, this is my No. 1 priority, and you are my No. 1 priority, and I would never do anything to jeopardize the quality of what I do here."
The possibility of Strahan joining Good Morning America comes on the heels of the announcement of Josh Elliott’s departure for the greener pastures of NBC Sports. As it stands, the GMA group has George Stephanopoulos, Robin Roberts, Amy Robach, Lara Spencer and Ginger Zee.
