Former New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez’ post-baseball career continues on the air with his turn as co-host on ABC’s “LIVE with Kelly.”

After Alex Rodriguez‘s abrupt departure from the New York Yankees in August, no one knew what he was going to do next. Not even Rodriguez himself.

However, it seems he has found his calling after his baseball career, as he picks up his second television gig in less than a month.

Rodriguez will join talk show host Kelly Ripa on her ABC show, “LIVE with Kelly” this Thursday. His previous stint on TV was his highly-acclaimed analyst role on Fox for the 2016 World Series.


According to the New York Daily News, Chicago Cubs slugger Kyle Schwarber is slated to appear on the show, making Rodriguez the perfect co-host to discuss all things baseball. A fellow World Series champion, A-Rod is guaranteed to receive more praise for his baseball talk on the small screen.

 

Who knows? With Ripa still looking for a permanent host after Michael Strahan’s departure, Alex Rodriguez might just find his second career- in TV broadcasting.

Tune in Thursday morning to catch A-Rod live with Kelly Ripa on ABC.
