Good Morning America
anchors Amy Robach, Robin Roberts, George Stephanopoulos and Lara Spencer officially welcomed Michael Strahan to the ABC show Tuesday.
Stephanopoulos presented Strahan with a silver alarm clock, an extra-large coffee mug and a wheel barrow filled with Sour Patch Kids, which the good-natured Live! with Kelly and Michael co-host gladly accepted.
Roberts noted that Strahan would be joining them "a couple days a week," and Robach explained that the former New York Giants player, 42, would be taking on stories that he loved while giving his opinion on them.
"I'm looking forward to it," Strahan said. "I watch every morning obviously, and watch what you guys do ... and now actually, instead of talking to the TV, I actually get to talk with you," he joked.
Good Morning America recently said goodbye to Josh Elliott in March, when he departed for NBC Sports.
