Posted: Updated:

"Good Morning America" confirmed Tuesday that Michael Strahan will be joining the show.

Strahan made a quick visit to the set to announce his role as the show's new part-time correspondent. Tuesday's show confirmed earlier reports that he was slated to join "GMA" part-time while continuing to host "Live!", which Strahan himself had alluded to on "Live!" earlier this month.

He high-fived cheering fans on his way to the anchor desk, where Robin Roberts, George Stephanopoulos, Amy Robach and Lara Spencer gave him a warm welcome. "We love you. We love Kelly," Roberts said. "Great friends to us over the years. So excited that you're going to join us a couple days a week."

Strahan will be back on the show in his new role starting next week.
