Michael Strahan Reportedly Joining ABC's "GMA," But Will Keep NFL Role With Fox
Published April 2, 2014
COMPETITION HEATS UP: In N.Y., Garvey, Niemietz & Cartwright cite sources as saying that Elliott’s decision to leave “GMA” was "not motivated by money but by the possibility of 'a bigger job down the road' at NBC -- which should have both Matt Lauer and Bob Costas worried." Elliott’s weekend exit "caught executives by surprise, but they had a plan if he bolted." A source said that Elliott "jumped at the chance to be involved in live sports again." The source added most news people “would underestimate the opportunity to be a part of highly rated events like ‘Sunday Night Football’ and the Olympics" (NYDAILYNEWS.com, 4/1).
