A report published by Broadcasting & Cable, stated that Michael Strahan would join Kelly Ripa as co-host of "Live!" next month.
Strahan is a former defensive end for the New York Giants and he has guest hosted the show a number of times since Regis Philbin's departure from the show last November. Philbin hosted the show for 28 years.
Other guest hosts since Philbin's departure included Alec Baldwin, Kim Kardashian and Seth Meyers, bringing in 59 guest co-hosts in total during her search to find the perfect match.
On Monday ABC-Disney Domestic Television announced that a permanent co-host had been selected and would be publically announced on September 4.
Strahan's reps have declined to comment on whether or not he will be the next co-host. Currently, Strahan is one of the co-hosts for "Fox NFL Sunday."
According to an anonymous source there were negotiations in the works with Strahan about becoming the next co-host of "Live!"
Strahan also was on a short-lived sitcom in 2009 called "Brothers."
