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.”

Carson Daly joins 'Today' show

Just call him Carson Twice-Daly.

The host of NBC’s Last Call — which airs weeknights at 1:35 a.m. Eastern — just snagged himself a morning job. Today has announced that on Sept. 16, Daly will join the show permanently as “the host of our brand new Orange Room,” a sort of digital/social media lounge that “connects the show and the audience like never before.”

In other words: He is to Today as Christina Milian is (was?) to The Voice.


'Today' show drama focus of NYT report; NBC responds

Everyone recalls Ann Curry’s teary departure from the Today show last summer — a culmination of weeks of rumors, and, it was later revealed, months of planning. And now a New York Times Magazine report released Thursday dives deep into the behind-the-scenes drama that led to her ousting and characterizes the morning show’s work environment as mean-spirited and filled with calculating moves.

For its part, a representative for the NBC show says: “We are focused on covering several major news stories this week and producing the best show we can for our viewers, not on year-old gossip.”

You can read the Times story in full here; the report is adapted from NYT media reporter Brian Stelter’s upcoming book Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV.

CNN announces new morning show with Chris Cuomo and Kate Bolduan

Another morning show is joining the crowd: CNN has just announced a new morning news program co-hosted by Chris Cuomo and Kate Bolduan. Michaela Pereira will be the program’s news anchor, joining CNN after nine years as host of KTLA Morning News in Los Angeles. “I’ve been looking forward to this announcement since I first joined CNN,” said president of CNN Worldwide Jeff Zucker in a release. “Chris, Kate and Michaela are a dynamic team that will give our viewers in America a new way to start their day. We were floored with excitement when we saw Chris and Kate together on screen, and by adding Michaela to the mix we feel we have something very special. We believe there is an opening to do news in the morning with a fresh, new voice.”

Cuomo joined CNN in January from ABC, where he was previously a co-anchor on 20/20 and a news anchor on Good Morning America. Bolduan joined CNN in 2007, and currently is the co-anchor of The Situation Room With Wolf Blitzer.

The new show will premiere this spring.
