Nearly 24 hours after news emerged that Live With Kelly and Michael co-host Michael Strahan would be leaving the daytime talk show for a permanent role at Good Morning America, both Strahan and the GMA team spoke excitedly about the move on the Wednesday editions of their shows.
On Live, Strahan poked fun at the level of coverage his move received, saying, “I was reading some stuff and it sounded like I died. I’m like, ‘It’s not a eulogy, people.'”
He then thanked everyone who has watched the show in the four years since he was named as Kelly Ripa’s full-time co-host and the Live family, which he says he considers himself to be part of “forever.”
“Can’t ask for better fans at all. You guys have been absolutely amazing,” said Strahan. “And on top of that, I’ve worked with an incredible staff here, and I’m always here.”
