When asked by co-host Kelly Ripa on "Live with Kelly and Michael" if he was taking the job, Strahan responded, "I don't know. If I read the papers I am." The former football phenom replaced Kelly's original co-host Regis Philbin in 2012 and quickly moved to reassure his co-host and fans, "This is my home, no matter what. I go nowhere. This is my love. You are my love. This is my job. So don't worry, anybody, I'm not going anywhere."
If talks pan out, Strahan will join "GMA" hosts Robin Roberts, George Stephanopoulos, Amy Robach, and Lara Spencer.
