“Between 1993 and 2007 he distinguished himself as one of the greatest defensive players in the history of the National Football League, with my Giants of course. He had an amazing 2001 season that led the league in sacks, twice. He won a Super Bowl in 2007 and all that seems to pale in comparison to what he’s doing on daytime television.” – Sid Rosenberg
A distinguished introduction for a distinguished individual that has managed to capture America’s heart on and off the field. Michael Strahan’s resume includes Hall of Famer, daytime talk show anchor and now the host and executive producer of the revived game show, “The $100,000 Pyramid.”
Born in Houston, Texas, Strahan played football for the HBCU, Texas Southern University. In 1993, after being honored as the Associated Press first-team college-division All-American, Strahan was drafted by the New York Giants. His impressive 15-year football career may be considered a footnote to his new career as the face of daytime television. Shortly after his 2008 retirement from the NFL, Strahan replaced Regis on “Live With Regis and Kelly,” to launch what has turned into an expansive career. “Live with Kelly and Michael,” was an instant hit. Strahan’s presence created an unexpected surge in ratings and gains across all demographics. His impressive ability to relate to audiences of all ethnicities and genders led to his full-time position on Good Morning America.
After four years on “Live with Kelly and Michael,” and a one-year stint on “Good Morning America,” Strahan found himself with his own show once again. In 2018, “Strahan and Sara,” landed in our 1 o’clock afternoon slots. With a Superbowl ring on his finger, two daytime Emmys in his back pocket, and now a new game show, the pro-bowler has effortlessly become a household name. Michael Strahan stopped by “Bernie and Sid in the Morning,” to discuss his talk show, “Strahan and Sara,” and his new role as host and executive producer of “The $100,000 Pyramid.”
