Michael Strahan Now Leaving 'Live' Months Ahead of Plan In May

Kelly Ripa (photosKelly Ripa photos) may have given the impression that all was right with the world again in her return to 'Live' on Tuesday.

However, just after the show finished airing, Michael Strahan said he was pushing up his exit from the morning talk show by four months.

Strahan will now leave for full-time duties on ABC's 'Good Morning America' in May -- not in September, as he previously said.

In fact, Strahan had told viewers just last week that he wouldn't be leaving until September.

"I'm not going anywhere," he told viewers on 'Live'. "I've still got months to go."

But there has obviously been a significant change in plans with Ripa's return and producers now claim that Strahan early exit "will not only give 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."

Kelly Ripa has been co-host of 'Live' since 2001. Strahan officially replaced Regis Philbin in 2012.
