Ripa's partner? It's Michael Strahan

Get ready for 'Live! With Kelly and Michael'

Ripa’s partner? It’s Michael Strahan

Live! With Kelly and Michael. Like the ring of it? The new duo starts the first week of September.

Strahan, the gap-toothed former New York Giant, seems an unlikely substitute for Regis Philbin, at least physically. But in his tryout weeks on the show, he displayed an affable manner and good chemistry with Ripa.
