Kelly Ripa announced today (Tuesday 9/4) that her new full-time official co-host on "Live! With Kelly" will be former NFL star Michael Strahan. This comes after Regis Philbin stepped down from the show last November.

The show will be renamed "Live! With Kelly and Michael." Strahan started his new gig today after the announcement. He had first appeared on the show back in 2008 after he won the Super Bowl with the New York Giants. Since then he has guest-hosted on the show more than 20 times.
