‘GMA Day’ Is Now ‘Strahan & Sara’

By A.J. Katz 

The 3rd hour of Good Morning America has received a new name, a new look and an even stronger focus on its hosts: Michael Strahan and Sara Haines.

GMA Day   –which launched in September and has been airing at 1 p.m. ET/12 p.m. CT/PT– will henceforth be known as Strahan and Sara.

Audience members took notice of a new set and logo this morning.


Though no longer GMA Day, Strahan & Sara will remain an ABC News program and is still considered part of the GMA franchise, despite its talk show nature.

Strahan & Sara will continue to air live to tape weekdays at 9 a.m. ET.

Sara Haines left The View over the summer to co-host the hour with Michael Strahan, who is also co-anchor of the flagship  7-9 a.m. edition of GMA.

The program formerly known as GMA Day replaced the cancelled culinary program The Chew back in the fall.

Variety reported that there would be a change earlier this morning.
