‘Strahan & Sara’ adds Keke Palmer, changes name
ABC News’ midday talk show “Strahan & Sara” is getting a new name and taking on another co-host.
Musician Keke Palmer was announced as the third co-host of the show now formerly known as “Strahan & Sara.”
This marks the show’s third name in under a year — it launched as “GMA Day” on Sept. 10, 2018 and changed its name to “Strahan & Sara,” after co-hosts Michael Strahan and Sara Haines, Jan. 28, 2019.
Now, with Palmer joining the mix, a new name was in order — so the show will henceforth be known as “GMA3: Strahan, Sara & Keke.”
That clunky new name sounds like a cross between a “Star Wars” movie and a law firm.
When the news was announced on the show, the trio celebrated the new name and co-host by changing the logo on the on-set video panel — as well as the bug and hashtag — live on air.
The logotype itself retained the same retro typeface.
The logo also added a “3” to the “GMA” letters that sit atop it — so it became “GMA3,” which could be in reference to its origins as the third hour of the “Good Morning America” franchise and its now three co-hosts.
The show also switched over its social media accounts to include a reference to Palmer’s first name.
Palmer had previously appeared on the show filling in while Haines was out on maternity leave.
Strahan also appears as one of three anchors of the first three hours of “GMA.”
