Michael Strahan to Join ABC’s ‘Good Morning America’

Michael Strahan is in negotiations to join ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

Strahan will remain cohost with Kelly Ripa of “Live with Kelly and Michael,” the Disney-distributed syndicated morning show. He’s expected to join the “GMA” ensemble in the studio a couple of times a week.

Strahan, a former NFL player, is also an analyst on Fox’s “NFL Sunday.” He was a surprise choice to fill Regis Philbin’s shoes opposite Ripa on “Live” in the fall of 2012. Since then, he’s been widely praised for his warmth and versatility on-air. The Disney parentage of “Live” and ABC makes it feasible for him to shuttle between the two ayem shows.

Sources said “GMA’s” discussions with Strahan have been going on for months and are not tied to Josh Elliott’s recent departure for NBC Sports.

CNN first broke the news of this deal.
