“It would be a dream to work with Kelly, but nobody’s offering anything so …” he said when asked about the soon-to-be vacant position.
He added: “Listen, I love Kelly and I think that show is—Kelly is the heart and soul of that show and it’s going to go on and continue to be great and I wish Michael the best in his new endeavor.”

Ironically Andy Cohen, host of the Bravo’s night time show, is also a rumored candidate to replace Strahan when he begins at “Good Morning America” in September. Other rumored potential candidates include Josh Groban, Mario Lopez, and Neil Patrick Harris.
