One of the best parts of my job as an anchor for Good Morning America and GMA Strahan & Sara and as a host on $100,000 Pyramid is that I get to talk to all kinds of really interesting, incredible people every day. I’ve had the good fortune to interview notables from every industry and every corner of the globe—which is why I’m so excited to announce the debut of my first-ever digital series, “Close Talker with Michael Strahan.”
Hard-hitting journalism this isn’t, but it is a ton of fun. I first thought of the idea about a year and a half ago: Nobody likes a close talker because someone’s hot breath in your face is never comfortable. I also wanted to have some fun backstage with my celebrity friends who were already scheduled to be guests on $100,000 Pyramid. They were all really good sports and my total lack of respect for personal space made for some serious laughs. Let’s just say that the only thing worse than a close talker is a close talker with bad breath.
Up-close, uncomfortable, and unfiltered, Season 1 of “Close Talker”—featuring celebrity guests including Adam Rodriguez, Snoop Dogg, Julie Bowen, and Rob Riggle—airs every Friday beginning Thursday, June 21 on my IGTV page.
