Former Giants DE Strahan Lands Permanent Role as Kelly Ripa’s Co-Host

For those that want to see Michael Strahan on an everyday basis entertain the masses, you will be getting your wish.

The former Giants defensive end has a new gig – as Kelly Ripa’s co-host on “Live with Kelly and Michael.” The news was officially confirmed on his first day of work Tuesday.

“I am speechless,” Strahan said via ET online. “I am so happy to be here and be a part of this. You know how you say it’s a dream come true, but I truly can’t say that I ever even dreamed this.”

This is huge news for absolutely no one we know, but it’s hard not see the irony of Strahan getting such a gig while Tiki Barber’s media career flounders. Strahan and Barber famously warred in public about contract negotiations when they were both Giants.

    I caught some of Monday’s episode where Kelly hosted by herself, and it was AWFUL. Hopefully Strahan will help balance things out.

    I just don’t see it happening. It was awful, but I’m not sure it will change much. May take him some time to get comfortable in his new role.
