*As we announced earlier today, Michael Strahan officially started his run as permanent co-host of “Live” with Kelly Ripa.
Interestingly he started making appearances on the show after winning the Super Bowl (with the NY Giants) in 2008. And on that show, then long time host Regis Philbin asked him what he’s like to do when his football playing days are over and Strahan jokingly told him he’s like to replace him one day. And lo and behold, it actually happened just that way.
“I’m speechless. I’m so happy to be here and to be a part of this,” an emotional Strahan told the “Live” audience today.

Hopefully Strahan is in as good shape as he looks because he’s going to be a busy, busy guy. Besides starting his new gig on Live, which is based in NYC, he’s also part of cast of Fox NFL Sunday, the pre and post-game show which broadcast from LA.
Strahan is a good guy and we wish him nothing but the best in this new phase of his career.
