Ex-NFL star Strahan becomes Kelly Ripa's co-host

(Continued)

"It seems like we've been doing it all along," she added.

In return, Strahan said Ripa has "done a great job for 11 or 12 years, and hopefully we'll do it for the next 11 or 12 years."

In the meantime, he will continue as a host of "Fox NFL Sunday," which originates from Los Angeles, where he lives. He will commute to New York to do "Live!"

How will he handle that routine?

"Get on a plane," he cracked. "Coming here during the week and doing this show, it's fun. I don't look at it as if it's a chore."

Before bringing Strahan out, Ripa joked about the lengthy search, advising people to stop sending her resumes.

"I have enjoyed every single solitary person — except for one," she said. "The staff is laughing because they know that's true."

Asked afterward who that one spoilsport had been, she stated with a laugh, "I would never reveal the co-host I did not enjoy being with."

"But I will!" Strahan jumped in.

"He figured it out," said Ripa, offering yet more evidence of their rapport. "He watches the show and he knows my body language."
