CNN reports that Michael Strahan, the former New York Giant turned Regis Philbin replacement, is set to join the cast of Good Morning America, with an announcement expected sometime this week. A source tells the AP that Strahan will appear semi-regularly during the show's first hour, and continue hosting Live With Kelly and Michael at 9 a.m. ABC has been in talks with Strahan for months, and insiders are stressing that he isn't replacing anyone. He just happens to be joining the morning show days after Josh Elliott departed for NBC Sports, leaving George Stephanopoulos as the only man in the cast.
