Michael Strahan: ABC’s Good Morning America will be without Michael Strahan for the time being as he tends to personal family matters. An ABC spokesperson confirmed Strahan’s absence and stated, “Michael Strahan will not be with us this week as he is dealing with some personal family matters. We appreciate everyones thoughts and concerns.” The former professional football player, who joined the morning news show in 2016, has not been on air since October 26. During his absence, Nightline co-anchor Juju Chang and World News Tonights Linsey Davis have stepped in to fill the void.
In addition to his role on Good Morning America, Strahan has also been missing from his position as an analyst on Fox NFL Sunday for the last two weeks. Fox Sports commentator Curt Menefee explained on Sunday that Strahan’s absence was due to him “dealing with a personal family matter.”
Strahan, who hasn’t posted on social media since October 25 when he promoted his game show, The $100,000 Pyramid, is a father to four adult children: Tanita, Michael Jr., Isabella, and Sophia. His two older children, Tanita and Michael Jr., are from his first marriage to Wanda Hutchins, while he shares 19-year-old twins, Isabella and Sophia, with his second wife, Jean Muggli.
