Michael Strahan Felt He Couldn’t “Speak Up” Behind The Scenes Of “Live” With Kelly Ripa

Good Morning America host and Fox Sports contributor Michael Strahan had a messy public business divorce with Kelly Ripa and the LIVE with Kelly and Michael show in 2016.

Page Six reports that one of the reasons Strahan left for GMA was because his voice wasn’t being heard behind the scenes. During a town hall on racism for all ABC and Disney employees earlier this month, A source reports, “Michael said that there were some very tense situations with executives who got argumentative and loud on the show, and he was very aware he couldn’t speak up or raise his voice as he was worried he would be seen as threatening.”

While Strahan didn’t directly mention LIVE, the source says many people in the meeting knew he was talking about the show.

How do you think Ripa will respond to the report? Have you left a job because your voice was not being heard?
