Kelly Ripa Explains Michael Strahan's Early Departure From 'Live'

Kelly Ripa is addressing why Michael Strahan had to depart Live! with Kelly and Michael four months early, after initial reports indicated he would be staying through the summer.

“What we’ve explained…is, ‘Well, if you had asked us, we would have told you, Guys, we need to start looking, because we have summer hiatus, we have vacation time. We need to find people. If we’re going to have this list narrowed down at least to a manageable size by the fall, we need to start now,’” Kelly told People about telling the crew of Live about the situation. Kelly added, “nobody consulted us initially.”

“We just keep doing it one show at a time,” Kelly added. “We always try to remind ourselves it’s never as good as we think it is and it’s never as bad as we think it is. We just keep marching forward. That’s what we’ve done for years. It’s not a formula I invented. This is a formula that Regis [Philbin] created, and we’re sticking to it.”
