Lara Spencer promoted to 'Good Morning America' co-host

Good Morning America’s Lara Spencer will now be joining Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos as co-host.

Spencer has been on the show as a lifestyle anchor, a position created just for her, since 2011, but before that, she was a national correspondent for Good Morning America from 1999 to 2003.

This isn’t the only GMA news this week: Live! With Kelly and Michael co-host and former football star Michael Strahan officially announced April 15 that he’ll be joining the hosts a few times a week while still keeping his Live! gig.

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 be named new 'Live! with Kelly' co-host

Former NFL player Michael Strahan will be Kelly Ripa’s new co-host on Live! with Kelly, sources confirm to EW.

His hiring comes after a several months-long search for a new co-host to replace Regis Philbin, who left the show in November.

ABC had no comment.

Back in July, it was rumored that the field was down to three hosts — Strahan, SNL‘s Seth Meyers, and singer Josh Groban. In an EW poll, almost 50 percent of readers said Meyers was their top pick. Strahan came in second with 31 percent of the votes.

Yesterday, the show announced its new season would start Sept. 3 and feature Ripa hosting the show solo for the very first time. Her debut with a new co-host is set for Sept. 4, with guests Claire Danes and American Idol winner Phillip Phillips.
