MIchael Strahan

To Join "Live"

With Kelly Ripa

8/21/2012 1:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0821_strahan_artMichael Strahan was picked to partner with Kelly Ripa on her morning syndicated show ... this according to staffers at ABC in New York City.

Several staffers told TMZ ... the talk in the building is that Strahan -- who played in the NFL and won a Super Bowl ring -- will be announced as the co-host.

Strahan's rep was seen outside the building on 67th and Columbus a short time ago grinning from ear to ear.

Strahan tried out for the gig in June and apparently impressed the suits.

BTW ... Strahan is 6'5" ... Kelly is 5'3".  Dancing should be fun.

We got Strahan out a few weeks ago, joking about Tim Tebow getting laid -- he's a pretty funny guy ... so we gotta ask ...

I can't believe it. He's no match for Kelly that's for sure. I thought when they first had him guest on the show that he showed he wasn't too swift however sweet. Oh well, I wish them good luck anyway.

This won't last long at all - no former NFL'er with money, is going to be able to get up every day at like 4 am to make it to the show on time,

My pick would have been Seth Meyers.
Michael Strahan did keep me laughing when he
co hosted with Kelly. Good Luck Michael, and Congratulations. I will continue to watch Live each morning.
