Spoiler Alert: Kelly Ripa's new co-host named
NEW YORK -- Former football star Michael Strahan is getting a permanent job in morning television as Kelly Ripa's co-host.
Strahan replaces Regis Philbin on the syndicated "Live! With Kelly" show, adding his name to the title. The gap-toothed former New York Giant is currently a host of "Fox NFL Sunday."
He was one of several men to get tryouts with Ripa as the show rotated several potential replacements since Philbin left last November. Philbin was the original "Live!" host for more than 28 years, with Ripa joining him in 2001.
Ripa announced it this morning, with Strahan jogging in and picking his co-host up in a bear hug.
