It's been one week since the former NFL pro said goodbye to Live! and his co-host Kelly Ripa, and he tells DuJour magazine that he's excited to start his full-time position at Good Morning America. "I'm looking forward to moving to Good Morning America full-time, but I loved being at Live!," he says. "It's a great show, great people and I'm very fortunate to have been a part of it."
Despite the drama surrounding his Live! exit, Strahan still enjoys working in live TV. "I love spontaneity and uncertainty," he shares. "Not knowing what's going to happen from second to second keeps you very present."
Live! executive producer Michael Gelman also gushes to the publication about the former daytime talk show host. "Michael has charisma, a big, warm, playful personality, and has the rare ability to be himself on camera," he says. "But he also has that special hard-to-define quality, that ‘x-factor' that makes him stand out."
The 44-year-old TV personality made his first appearance on GMA this week after only have one day off following his Live! exit.
Strahan spoke to ET at the 2016 Met Gala about his drama-filled departure, and admitted that he thought "everyone got the wrong impression" of what all went down.
