It's been widely speculated that former New York Giants defensive end Michael Strahan would eventually take over as co-host of "Live!" alongside Kelly Ripa following Regis Philbin's retirement in 2011. He has made several guest appearances on the show, and was recently deemed one of three finalists, along with Josh Groban and Seth Meyers.
On Tuesday, word leaked that Strahan would, in fact, be given the permanent position on the New York-based morning show.
"ABC is expected to announce in early September that Michael Strahan will take over as the cohost of Live! alongside Kelly Ripa, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the situation," Broadcasting and Cable reported.
In addition to his now permanent spot on Live!, Strahan will continue in his role with Fox NFL Sunday which is filmed in Los Angeles.
No stranger to being on camera, Strahan has also made several appearances on The Best Damn Sports Show Period, Rome is Burning, Pros vs. Joes, Chuck and even had his own sitcom, Brothers, which aired 13 episodes on FOX in 2009.
