When he walked away from the game of football roughly four months after winning that elusive Super Bowl ring in 2008, former New York Giants defensive end Michael Strahan received some criticism for making what some people considered a slightly premature decision. But ever since, the former NFL Defensive Player of the Year has been changing hearts and minds with his work in front of the bright lights. And now, it looks like Strahan’s charm has persuaded CBS television producers.

According to numerous reports, the seven-time Pro Bowler will be named the new co-host of Live!, where he will be replacing the legendary Regis Philbin as the broadcast partner of the lovely Kelly Ripa. Strahan was apparently one of three finalists in contention for the position, beating out Saturday Night Live talent Seth Meyers and singer Josh Groban.

With this new gig, Strahan will be pulling six-day work weeks during the upcoming 2012-13 NFL season: he will work Monday-Friday doing Live! in New York City, then fly out west to do his studio work for FOX NFL coverage in Los Angeles on Sundays. The rising star has now officially become a crossover star, and it looks like there is no slowing him down anytime in the near future.
