Michael Strahan was picked to partner with Kelly Ripa on her morning syndicated show … this according to staffers at ABC in New York City.
Several staffers told our sources … the talk in the building is that Strahan — who played in the NFL and won a Super Bowl ring — will be announced as the co-host.
Strahan”s rep was seen outside the building on 67th and Columbus a short time ago grinning from ear to ear.
Strahan tried out for the gig in June and apparently impressed the suits.
BTW … Strahan is 6″5″ … Kelly is 5″3″. Dancing should be fun.
