ABC’s “Strahan, Sara and Keke,” is getting the ax, multiple sources told Page Six. The show hosted by Michael Strahan, Sara Haines and Keke Palmer is being replaced with “GMA 3: What You Need to Know.”
ABC News took the show off-air in March and replaced it with “Pandemic: What You Need to Know,” a daily coronavirus report anchored by Amy Robach, Dr. Jen Ashton and occasionally TJ Holmes. “It was initially supposed to be a two-week experiment and the show did really well,” a source said. “Pandemic” then morphed into “GMA 3” to include other topics in the news cycle.
ABC vet Catherine McKenzie began producing the show four months ago and the network officially announced her as Executive Producer of the program on Thursday.
While ABC has yet to announce “Strahan, Sara and Keke” is over, a spokesperson said: “We’re proud of our teams at ‘SSK’ and ‘GMA3’ and how quickly they transitioned to producing a daily show to give people the news and information they need during an unprecedented pandemic, and conversations continue about how the show will evolve in the months ahead.”
