Changes are coming to ABC’s Live With Kelly and Michael. The network has just announced that host Michael Strahan is set to leave the daily talk show in order to join Good Morning America full-time.
In a statement released to The Hollywood Reporter, Strahan said he was excited to begin his new hosting gig with the morning show.
“I look forward to continuing to work with the incredible team at GMA. It is an exciting opportunity to be able to bring unique stories and voices to the audience,” Strahan told THR. “My time with LIVE with Kelly and Michael has been transformative and my departure will be bittersweet. Kelly has been an unbelievable partner and I am thankful to her and the entire team. I am extremely grateful for the amazing support I’ve received from all the fans.”
Fans of Strahan can expect to see the former sports analyst start his new gig on Good Morning America beginning in September. Additionally, Strahan is expected to exit Live With Kelly and Michal after a four year stint on the daily talk show sometime this summer.
We’re sure Michael Strahan will be missed, but it’s good to know he won’t be straying far from our television screens. We’re exited to see him join Good Morning America full time in the fall!
