ABC announced Tuesday the gap-toothed former NFL player will join Good Morning America full time in September after serving as a twice-a-week "special correspondent" since 2014. He'll give up his stint as Kelly Ripa's co-host on sibling Disney's syndicated Live with Kelly and Michael, which follows GMA in many markets, after replacing Regis Philbin in 2012.

ABC News chief James Goldston called Strahan a "tireless and versatile broadcaster with an incredible ability to connect with people" in a statement announcing the news.
