Michael Strahan made his Good Morning America debut this morning (April 15), and had quite a warm reception from the GMA staff!
“We love you, we love [Kelly Ripa]—you’ve been great friends to us over the years. We’re so, so excited that you’re going to join us a couple days a week,” co-anchor Robin Roberts said. Anchor George Stephanopoulos added, “The way you all stepped in, especially while Robin was away dealing with her transplant, was so special to all of us. We’re so glad you’re going to be here all the time.”
“It’s a pleasure to get up early because you guys have been so good to us as well. Kelly and I really appreciate it. Robin, you fill in for Kelly when she’s not there, and it’s a family. So we appreciate it,” Michael said on air. “Now instead of talking to the TV, I actually get to talk to you.”
Michael will still continue his duties on Live! with Kelly & Michael. Check out the video of his debut below!
