Michael Strahan officially joins 'Good Morning America' -- VIDEO

Former New York Giant and current Live! With Kelly and Michael co-host Michael Strahan is officially joining the Good Morning America team after a months-long negotiation with ABC News.

Strahan stopped by the Good Morning America set Tuesday morning for the announcement — and to receive both an alarm clock from George Stephanopoulos and a giant coffee cup from Lara Spencer, which should help out with his new extra-early wakeup time. He will join the show a few days a week while still maintaining his Live! co-hosting duties.

Michael Strahan sort of confirms he'll be co-hosting 'Good Morning America' on 'Live!' -- VIDEO

Michael Strahan addressed reports that he’ll be joining Good Morning America on Wednesday’s edition of Live!, saying he has taken meetings about participating on GMA and would enjoy a co-hosting role on the early morning talker. Strahan stopped short of announcing his new position as a done deal, though insiders have confirmed to EW that he will be pulling double-duty on ABC in the mornings.

When Live! co-host Kelly Ripa asked the former New York Giant about the news, Strahan said he was surprised by the reports. “I went and had a meeting and talked about the possibility of doing something there…and then [last night] I got out of the Captain America screening and I’m looking at my messages, next thing you know I’m on Good Morning America.”

“So, are you gonna do it?” Ripa pressed her partner. “I…I don’t know,” Strahan answered. “If I read the papers I am.” READ FULL STORY

Michael Strahan to join 'Good Morning America' team

Michael Strahan will soon be pulling double-duty at ABC.

The former footballer and current co-host of Live! With Kelly and Michael is about to close a deal to join the Good Morning America team, insiders confirm to EW. Strahan will continue his duties alongside Kelly Ripa and contribute to GMA‘s coverage prior to reporting for duty at Live!, where he has co-hosted since 2012.

Strahan’s addition, however, will have no effect on the anchor lineup, which will remain intact. Strahan is expected to appear in GMA’s top hour without affecting the current roles of  Robin Roberts, George Stephanopoulos, Lara Spencer, Ginger Zee, and Amy Robach, who this week replaced the exiting Josh Elliott.

ABC News has been in negotiations for months with Strahan, whose addition has been a boon to Live! One insider insists the talks pre-date the current salary negotiations that resulted in a major pay boost for Roberts (who is reportedly making in the $14 million a year range) and Spencer (whose around $8 million). Stephanopoulos’ deal doesn’t expire until year’s end.

Changes on GMA began with the surprise departure of Sam Champion to The Weather Channel in December. Elliott, meanwhile, closed a new with NBC Sports Sunday that led to GMA announcing on Monday that Robach will replace him as the newsreader.

'Kelly and Michael' to meet the Romneys

The Romneys are visiting Kelly and Michael. Producers of Live! with Kelly and Michael say Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney and wife Ann will appear on the daytime talk show Tuesday.

The show announced Thursday that the Romneys will stop by the show’s New York studio to chat with Kelly Ripa and her new co-host, Michael Strahan, about life on the campaign trail.

It will be the Romneys’ first appearance on a daytime talk show during the 2012 campaign.
