Good Morning America is reportedly drafting a onetime Giant to beef up its ranks.
On the heels of news anchor Josh Elliot’s abrupt exit earlier this week — and the subsequent promotion of Amy Robach to take over that position — CNN is reporting that ABC soon will announce that Live With Kelly & Michael cohost Michael Strahan is joining the morning program.
Citing well-placed sources, CNN says Strahan would keep his Live gig, appearing in occasional GMA segments starting at 7 am at their (TVLine-adjacent!) Times Square studio, before heading uptown to do Live with Kelly Ripa.
ABC News President Ben Sherwood alluded to additional moves to come in a memorandum to staffers about Robach’s promotion, saying, “In the days ahead, there will be more good news on the show, so stay tuned.”
Strahan’s reported hire also comes months after Sam Champion was lured away from GMA by The Weather Channel.
