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.
