Emmy winner and Super Bowl Champion Michael Strahan currently co-hosts ABC’s “Good Morning America” and serves as an analyst for “Fox NFL Sunday.” This summer, Strahan hosted the top-rated primetime game show favorite “$100,000 Pyramid” on ABC, produced by SMAC Entertainment in association with Sony Pictures Television. It was recently picked up for a second season. He also lent his voice in the hit animated film “Ice Age: Collision Course.”
This fall, Strahan will co-produce “Religion of Sports,” an original documentary series that examines unique examples of sports’ cultural and spiritual impact in regions around the world, airing exclusively on the AUDIENCE Network on both DIRECTV and AT&T U-verse this fall. Additionally, alongside his partner Constance Schwartz-Morini, Strahan is developing the scripted drama “Hobbs” for ABC.
From 2012-2016, Strahan co-hosted the top-rated, nationally syndicated entertainment talk show “LIVE with Kelly and Michael.” In 2015, he released his best-selling book, “Wake Up Happy: The Dream Big, Win Big Guide to Transforming Your Life,” which includes personal stories and motivational advice to inspire readers to turn up the heat and go from good to great in pursuit of their personal ambitions. The paperback edition will be released this October.
Acting on his entrepreneurial spirit, Strahan introduced COLLECTION by MICHAEL STRAHAN in the fall of 2015, a men’s tailored and accessories line available exclusively at JCPenney. Capitalizing on the success of his partnership with JCP, Strahan launched MSX, a men’s Athleisure line, in May 2016, with plans to expand into additional categories in the coming seasons.
Prior to joining the ranks of the top sports broadcasters in the country, Strahan’s entire 15-year football career was typified by the charisma and sportsmanship that made him a seven-time Pro-Bowler and one of only four players ever to lead the NFL in sacks for two seasons. His spectacular NFL career resulted in Strahan being named to the 2014 Pro Football Hall of Fame class, the sport’s highest honor.
Dedicated to many charitable works, Strahan donates his hands and heart to numerous charities including St. Jude Children’s hospital, The USO and HELP USA.
Born in Houston, Texas, Strahan spent most of his youth in Germany, where his father Gene was stationed in the U.S. Army. Strahan returned to the U.S. for a portion of high school and soon was recruited to play football at Texas Southern University. A father of four, Strahan currently spends his time between New York and Los Angeles.
