Strahan to join 'Good Morning America' part time

NEW YORK (AP) - Talk show host and former football star Michael Strahan is expected to soon join the cast of ABC's "Good Morning America," at least on a part-time basis.

A person with knowledge of the negotiations who requested anonymity because the deal hasn't been completed said Tuesday that Strahan will work semi-regularly during the show's first hour. Strahan continues as host of the daytime talker "Live with Kelly and Michael."

The top-rated morning news show has lost two male cast members in the past four months: Sam Champion to The Weather Channel and Josh Elliott to NBC Sports, the latter in a deal expected to be formally announced Wednesday. Talks with Strahan reportedly predate Elliott's departure, announced on Sunday.

Strahan would join cast members George Stephanopoulos, Robin Roberts, Amy Robach, Lara Spencer and weather forecaster Ginger Zee.

Girley men, mouthy know nothing women and liberal extremisist fluff do not make for a good news program. We dont watch it. FOX news is by far the best.

I, think it is a shame what ABC offered Josh, after what they gave to Robin, I like Robin, but she is not worth 14 million . Josh, is great and I don't think GMA will be the same. I miss him.

I think GMA is shooting itself in the foot on both changes, losing Josh and taking in Strahan. Big, big mistake.

There are so many people out of work that needs jobs, why do they have to hire someone who already has a job. Share the wealth.
