It is like the Brinks truck was backed up for NFL Hall of Famer Michael Strahan and that seemed to make his decision easier.   The Disney Company which owns ABC has gotten Michael Strahan to leave The Kelly and Michael show afte 4 years.   Michael is now going to be a full timer on Good Morning America.   There is talk of the news show adding a third hour which would bump off the Kelly and Michael show, and help stop the Today Show which is gaining in the ratings.

Ripa, when she heard the news yesterday did not take it very well, some staffers say she went ballistic when Michael told her and their Producer after yesterdays show.

Rumer has it that the former NFL player will be making bank in the 8 figure range.   Hard to say no to that kink of cash.

ABC Feels that he is a good fit for their show, because he is the kind of guy that appeals to everyone.

Have fun spending all that cash, and enjoy your new job!    No word on whether or not a search for a co-host for Kelly Ripa will happen, but we will keep you posted.
