Well, it looks like the rumors are true! Today, on “Live with Kelly and Michael” Michael Strahan revealed to the audience that he would be working part-time at ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
He said that he found out the news about his “GMA” gig had broken on Tuesday night.
“So what is so surprising is I had a meeting, and we talked about the possibility there, and then I went to see Captain America with Samuel L. Jackson and I get out of screening and I check my message and I’m on ‘Good Morning America.'”
A person who has knowledge of the negotiations told the Associated Press that Strahan will be working semi-regularly during GMA’s first hour.
“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.
Don’t think this means that Strahan will be saying bye to “Live with Kelly and Michael.” He promised fans of the show that he won’t be leaving Ripa’s side.
“I just want everyone to know and [Kelly] to know that no matter what, this is my number one priority, and you [Kelly] are my number one priority, and I would never do anything to jeopardize the quality of what I do here.”
Strahan will join cast members Robin Roberts, George Stephanopoulos, Lara Spencer, Amy Robach, and weather forecaster Ginger Zee.
