[ # ] Kelly Ripa got Michael Strahan to give two weeks notice?
April 26th, 2016 under Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos, Michael Strahan

Remember when Michael Strahan announced last week that he was leaving Live with Kelly and Michael to go to Good Morning America and he said that he would stay until September? Things changed.
Shortly after Kelly Ripa made her return to the show, it was revealed that her co-host would be not be staying until September. In fact, he is leaving a lot earlier because his last day is May 13th.
ABC released this statement to People about his much earlier departure:

After meeting with the producers of both Live! and Good Morning America, and after speaking with Kelly and Michael, we have decided on a plan that best advantages both shows for the future.”
To that end, Michael’s last day on Live! will be on Friday, May 13, which not only gives the show the chance to have a nice send-off for him during the May book, but to also immediately begin the on-air search for a new co-host.
This plan also allows GMA to start integrating Michael into the show more often this summer before his full-time start in September.

This is what they should’ve done in the first place. This makes total sense.
But let’s be honest, who thinks they are doing to test out co-anchors for her and start him on GMA early? We are all thinking that they are doing this because this was probably was one of the agreements that Ripa made with the head honchos at ABC to get her back on the show today.
When it comes to Strahan, I am sure he is doing a dance like the one above to celebrate that he is out of there in just over two weeks.
