The Live with Kelly and Michael story continues! It was announced today that Michael Strahan will be stepping down from his role as co-host of Live! EARLY – in fact, he’ll be stepping down FOUR MONTHS earlier than originally planned.
Sources said May 13th is his last show. He’ll take the summer off and Good Morning America can integrate him early before September. This will give Live! more time to find a new co-host.
ABC also confirmed the news with a statement that said: “After meeting with the producers of both Live! and Good Morning America, and after speaking with Kelly and Michael, we have decided on a plan that best advantages both shows for the future.”
This all after the big ordeal that led to Kelly taking a few days off after news broke that Strahan was leaving the show to go to GMA. She says no one told her the news until it became public knowledge and she was hurt and felt the company didn’t consider her show to be a priority.
Well, Kelly returned to the show today, and she had quite a few words to say. Check it out…
So, it SEEMS Kelly is putting on that smile until Michael leaves the show. Don’t you think?
