Michael Strahan Will Be Kelly Ripa's New Co-Host on "Live"

TMZ is reporting that former New York Giant defensive end and FOX football analyst Michael Strahan will join Kelly Ripa as the permanent cohost of “Live.” He tried out for the job in June. He can’t be the first person to remove pants to score a plum media gig.

Seth Meyers and Josh Groban were purportedly under consideration as well.
