Michael Strahan Officially Joins Good Morning America — What About Kelly? (VIDEO)
Your mornings just got a lot more Michael! Morning show darling and gap-toothed hunk Michael Strahan has officially joined the crew over on Good Morning America!
We had a hunch Michael might be getting the GMA treatment. Earlier this month, a source told People magazine that the former NFL star was in talks with the national show. He isn’t, however, filling the spot left vacant by the departure of co-host Josh Elliott in March but coming on as a fresh face to pop up once and awhile throughout the week.
The 42-year-old Michael stopped by GMA this morning (April 15) to share the good news and he did it in classic goofball fashion. After walking in on the red carpet, he joined Robin Roberts, George Stephanopoulos, and the rest of the morning crew who gave him a warm welcome.
“We’re so, so excited that you’re going to join us a couple days a week,” Robin gushed. Watch the video above to see the fun props Michael had to celebrate his new gig!
But don’t worry; Kelly Ripa over on the Live! With Kelly and Michael won’t be putting up a help wanted sign anytime soon. Michael will still be holding down the fort over on that popular series. He’ll just be getting up a little bit earlier than normal.
Are you excited Michael’s joining GMA or worried he’s going to be totally exhausted by the double duty?
