Michael Strahan’s schedule just got busier!
The FOX NFL Sunday co-host and former NFL star will be filling the seat left vacant by Regis Phibin on Live! with Kelly Ripa.
The big news leaked on to the internet on Tuesday, after sites reported that Strahan’s rep was spotted outside of the ‘Live’ studio with an “ear to ear” grin.
ABC has yet to comment on the news, but did announce that the show’s new host would be revealed on September 4, when (they) join Kelly Ripa on stage for their first show together.
Strahan previously revealed that if he was offered the gig, he would “be in New York before the ink dried.”
Ripa has had 59 guest hosts since Regis left the show, and she’ll be hosting the show by herself for the first time on September 3rd, the day before the new host joins her on stage.
Strahan will reportedly keep his gig with FOX sports on their NFL program, and will commute to Los Angeles on the weekends to film in studio.
