Josh Elliott says he did not leave Good Morning America for a higher salary.

"In the end, it had nothing to do with money," Elliott, 42, told PEOPLE in an exclusive statement, speaking for the first time since announcing he is exiting the No. 1 morning show for a job at NBC Sports.

Though the popular news anchor declined to comment on specific figures – a source says ABC offered him $5 million but he asked for $10 million, while another source says Elliott will be paid about $4 million a year by NBC – he said: "There were two great offers on the table, and it certainly was a difficult choice to make. I feel I made the best one."

Michael Strahan may soon join Good Morning America, he confirmed on Wednesday morning Live! – with some reservations.

Though ABC declined to comment, a source confirms to PEOPLE that ABC News has been talking to the former New York Giants defensive end, 42, for months.

Strahan, speaking to his Live! co-host Kelly Ripa on the air Wednesday, said the news about his joining the top-rated morning show – which he said he found out when he checked his text messages after a screening Tuesday night – was "surprising."

So, pressed Ripa, are you going?

"If I read the papers, I am," he said. "But this is my home," he added, assuring her that when the GMA gig kicks in, he will still costar with her on the 9 a.m. show.
