The popular host of Good Morning America, Michael Strahan, has been noticeably absent from the morning show on multiple occasions, prompting curiosity and speculation among viewers. Recent reports indicate that his absences, particularly on Mondays during the football season, are related to his role as a commentator for Fox NFL Sundays.
Michael Strahan, 51, was replaced by Rebecca Jarvis, 42, at the GMA desk during his recent absences. He is typically absent on Mondays due to his commitments at Fox NFL Sundays. The football analysis show takes place in California and features a panel of hosts, including Strahan, Terry Bradshaw, Curt Menefee, Howie Long, and Jimmy Johnson.
This Monday absence is not a rare occurrence, as Strahan often balances his duties between GMA and Fox NFL Sundays during the football season. His latest absence coincided with Robin Roberts also being missing from the morning show. While no official explanations have been provided for their absences, it is common for broadcasters to juggle multiple commitments in the entertainment industry.
Before his recent absences from GMA, Michael Strahan shared a teaser on his Instagram Stories, hinting at an upcoming project with his company, SMAC Entertainment. In the video, Strahan is seen sitting in a chair, wearing a light gray hoodie and dark gray athletic shorts, holding a book and a script in his hands. The caption read, “A quick VO for a SMAC Production,” and he tagged SMAC Entertainment, the company responsible for the film BS High, in which he is involved.
Strahan’s daughter was also recently seen partying with Tyga.
While Strahan’s frequent absences may raise questions, it is not uncommon for high-profile television hosts to manage multiple professional commitments simultaneously. Fans of Good Morning America will likely continue to see the beloved host on their screens, even if his schedule occasionally leads to temporary absences from the show.
