Michael Strahan is joining "Good Morning America" on the heels of Josh Elliott's departure ... TMZ has confirmed.
ABC sources tell TMZ Strahan will appear during the 7:00 hour of GMA ... 3 to 4 times a week. He'll be a utility player ... features, lifestyle, sports ... pretty much anything.
GMA is in trouble ... Josh Elliott's departure for NBC Sunday was bitter. Sam Champion is gone. Lara Spencer and Amy Robach hate each other.
Not to mention ... Josh's departure makes little George Stephanopoulos look lost in the land of Amazons. Dude needs a testosterone-assist which Strahan provides.
GMA is a $300 million a year cash cow for ABC and it's in danger of losing ground fast.
How far behind could Kelly Ripa be?
