Michael Strahan, co-anchor of “Good Morning America” (GMA), has been noticeably absent from his hosting duties on the show for nearly two weeks, raising concerns among fans and viewers. ABC News has officially stated that his absence is due to personal family matters.
Strahan’s last appearance on the popular morning show was on October 26, leaving many fans wondering about his sudden disappearance. ABC News later confirmed that he will not be present on the show for the entire week. During his absence, either Juju Chang or Linsey Davis has filled in to temporarily host alongside his co-anchor, Robin Roberts.
The former NFL star has not only been missing from “GMA,” but he has also been absent from his analyst role on Fox’s “NFL Sunday.” Fox Sports commentator Curt Menefee confirmed that Strahan is currently dealing with a personal family matter, which has led to his absence from both shows.
Strahan’s social media accounts have also been unusually silent since October 25, with his latest posts solely promoting his game show, “The $100,000 Pyramid.” Representatives for Strahan have not responded to media inquiries seeking comments or further information regarding his absence.
Fans have expressed concern and sent well-wishes to Strahan through his social media accounts, eagerly awaiting his return to “GMA” and hoping for a positive outcome regarding his family matter. Strahan joined “GMA” as a part-time co-host in 2014 and then became a full-time co-anchor in 2016 after leaving his popular talk-show “Live With Kelly and Michael.”
As Strahan remains absent from his hosting duties, supporters and viewers of “Good Morning America” will undoubtedly keep a close eye on any updates regarding his return and well-being during this challenging time for him and his family.
