Smulders

Talk-show host and former football star Michael Strahan is coyly talking about, but not confirming, reports that he’s expected to soon join the cast of ABC’s “Good Morning America” on a part-time basis.

Strahan was asked by co-host Kelly Ripa on “Live With Kelly and Michael” Wednesday whether he was doing it, and Strahan replied: “I don’t know. If I read the papers I am.”

A person with knowledge of the negotiations who requested anonymity because the deal hasn’t been completed said Tuesday that Strahan will work semi-regularly during the show’s first hour. He will continue as host of “Live.”

“Good Morning America” has lost two male cast members in the past four months: Sam Champion to The Weather Channel and Josh Elliott to NBC Sports.
