Michael Strahan To Become Newest Addition To Good Morning America!

Looks like the male quotient on Good Morning America has just gone back up after the departure this week of Josh Elliott to NBC Sports!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the co-host of the syndicated talker, Live! with Kelly and Michael, Michael Strahan, has been tapped by the morning show to become their newest addition.  Exactly what role he will step into is yet to be determined and it’s unclear when exactly he will start, but he will step into the 7AM hour prior to the daily Live! with Kelly and Michael broadcast.

THR reports that, “Talks have been ongoing with Strahan and executives at ABC News for months. And sources stress that he will not replace any of the current GMA anchors; he’s expected to appear often, though not five days a week.”

The addition of Strahan balances out GMA’s very recent gender imbalance created by the abrupt departure of news anchor Elliott, and weather anchor Sam Championw hich left only George Stephanopoulos as the sole male anchor among four female co-anchors.

What do you think about Michael Strahan joining the GMA morning crew? Thumbs up? Or, thumbs down?  Let us know!

Michael Strahan should be a good addition to the GMA Staff. I know Cameron Mathison does some journalist stories for GMA. I think he would make a good morning anchor also….not just an occasional crew member.

I agree; I used to be a fan of Kelly’s. Now, she seems fake to me. I don’t watch “Live” anymore.

I find it annoying how he talks over guests on the K and Michael show. I find K even more annoying (so much so that I won’t type or say her name).

Talking over people seems to be a job requirement on gma. He will fit right on but I won’t be watching!

I don’t watch the show but he’s extremely personable. I think he’d probably do well on any talk-type show.

Millions of people watch GMA and Live With Kelly and Michael every morning. For those who watch everyday like I do, I look forward to seeing different people. If I watch GMA with Michael Straham then most likely I won’t watch Live with Kelly and Michael Straham. One program behind the other, I will be looking for different people.

It’s overkill. Like when GMA has a celebrity guest on and later that morning THE VIEW interviews the same guest who later appears on THE CHEW. Ugh.

If it’s true that ABC didn’t keep Sam and Josh because they couldn’t agree on the terms of their contracts, shame on ABC. They had a Dream Team at GMA and one by one it’s falling apart. I love Robin & George and like Lara, and if Michael can do it WITHOUT leaving Kelly, he will definitely help more than hurt. I still say ABC should’ve worked hard to keep Sam & Josh. They had a great “bromance” going and great relationship with Robin and George. I loved them on the show. Michael surely won’t hurt the show, George needs… Read more »

JoshElliot was an attention hog..he didn’t know how to share the spotlight and didn’t want to…Michael should go there and be replaced on LIVE with someone who can make Kelly interesting if that’s at all possible..which I suspect it’s not.

I totally disagree about Josh. I also think Kelly & Michael are AWESOME. Their show has FANTASTIC RATINGS! However I’m sure you like people that I don’t like too, so that’s what’s great about having a variety of shows to choose from. LOL When I was a kid we had 3 channels! Thank goodness it’s different now! Ha! Ha!

GMA is really screwing up!!! Although everyone is replaceable, you would think they would keep a good thing going for as long as possible. But I don’t care for Michael Strahan! GMA needs a news person…not another “celebrity” interviewer/pop culture “expert”….it already has enough of those!

Not impressed. How many people do they need? Looks like the desk is already full. Ginger has to stand.

Just one more reason NOT to tune in to GMA. They got rid of Josh just to replace him with Michael? What are they thinking? They got rid of one egomaniac for another? At least he’s not a full time host!

Since Michael joined Live With Kelly, I have stopped watching that show too. I do NOT care for him at all, nor do I care for the way Kelly has started acting since he became the co-host.

Michael is very annoying, I will not watch at all. Kelly Ripa, Run run and come back to acting. Live with kelly and Michael sucks now. Fire michael and bring Neil Patrick Harris as a host. Love him way better.

I quit watching the silly stuff on Abc morning a long time ago. I watch CBS morning show. I think the format there is better for adults. The chemistry, I think is good between the three on the show. I like all, Charlie, Nora and Gayle. Good mix between good, solid news stories and general thoughts of hosts without getting silly.

Lexi Ainsworth Teases Her Return to General Hospital

With her father Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) presumed dead, although viewers know he is very much alive with amnesia, it looks like Kristina is on her way back to Port Charles which would welcome a return to the role for Daytime Emmy winner, Lexi Ainsworth.

Rumors began circulating when on Wednesday during inauguration day, Ainsworth shared on her Instagram Story a pic of her watching the ceremonies from a dressing room at Prospect Studios in Los Angeles, where GH is taped.

Later, after reports on social media had surfaced that Ainsworth returning to her signature role, the actress shared some of those reports on her Instagram Story, which was seen as her way of confirming she is back on the show.

Lexi has been recurring on General Hospital for the last several years, so know telling as to how long she will be on-screen this time.

While there has been no official confirmation from GH; chances are if there is a funeral ahead for Sonny, of course, Kristina would be there to mour her father.  Stay tuned.

So, excited that Lexi will be back on-air on GH? Comment below.
