Exit from 'Live with Kelly and Michael'

Strahan shares that it was disappointing the way things happened back in April when he was told he had gotten the job with "Good Morning America."  The 44-year-old former co-host of "Live with Kelly and Michael" says when he announced he was leaving, Kelly Ripa, 45, was quite upset because she hadn't been told in advance.

She stayed away from work for a week before returning. Even though Strahan had planned to leave in September, his exit was moved up to May 13. Executives apologized to the former NFL star for putting him in a tough position with Ripa.  He and Kelly won two Daytime Emmy Awards for the morning talk show within the four years he was there. Strahan says he thought he and Kelly were friends. He admits he learned a lot from her. Toward the end, they weren't communicating that much.
