As I announced a couple weeks ago, Michael Strahan is the new host of ‘Live’ and officially started his permanent run yesterday.
Interestingly he started making appearances on the show after winning the Super Bowl (with the NY Giants) in 2008. And on that show, then long time Regis Philbin asked him what he’d like to do when his football playing days are over. Strahan jokingly told him he’d like to replace him one day! Look at that! Lo and behold, it actually happened just that way.
“I’m speechless. I’m so happy to be here and to be a part of this,”an emotional Strahan told the “Live” audience yesterday.
Hopefully Strahan is in as good shape as he looks because he’s going to be a busy, busy guy. Besides starting his new gig on Live, which is based in NYC, he’s also part of cast of FOX NFL Sunday, the pre and post-game show which broadcast from LA.
Strahan is a good guy and we wish him nothing but the best in this new phase of his career.
