According to Ben Grossman of Broadcasting and Cable, in early September ABC is expected to announce that former New York Giants great Michael Strahan will join Kelly Ripa on the show Live!.
“ABC is expected to announce in early September that Michael Strahan will take over as the cohost of Live! alongside Kelly Ripa, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the situation.
“Even when he assumes the new role, Strahan is expected to remain in his role with Fox NFL Sunday, as first reported by Joe Flint in the Los Angeles Times. The long-running ABC franchise originates weekdays from New York, while Fox’s popular NFL studio programming is in Los Angeles,” wrote Grossman.
I’m sure one of Strahan’s former teammates–Tiki Barber–is really envious of his career since Barber’s media career quickly went down the toilet.
