Ex-Giants star Michael Strahan finalizing deal to co-host 'Good Morning America

Strahan, 42, was hammering out the final details of a contract that would make him a permanent member of the breakfast show’s crew, a source with knowledge of the deal told the Daily News Tuesday.

Under the arrangement in the works, Strahan would do double duty at ABC, keeping his gig as co-host of “Live with Kelly & Michael.”
