Jimmy Kimmel, who hosts Jimmy Kimmel Live! on the same network, will sit down with Kelly as her very first guest co-host on May 16. Michael Strahan is set to exit the show on Friday (May 13) and expected to begin full time at Good Morning America in the fall.
The search is on for the full-time replacement for Michael after his departure. When Regis Philbin left the show years ago, it took 10 months for the network to chose Michael as his replacement.
