Michael Strahan revealed what he loves about working in live television.
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."
