Today “LIVE” co-host and soon-to-be “Good Morning America” correspondent Michael Strahan was named to The Hollywood Reporter’s annual 35 Most Powerful People in New York Media for 2014. The honor comes preferable restaurant reservations, legitimate powerbroker status and most importantly, invites to the best summer parties in the Hamptons.

Bob Costas also appears on the list — so in the interest of sports — aside of little Hermie, Strahan is more powerful than:

  • Peter King
  • Mike Florio
  • Darren Rovell
  • Barry Petchesky
  • Mike Lupica
  • Keith Olbermann
  • Pablo S. Torre
  • Murray Chass
  • All of The Classical

Well done, Strahan. A friendly attitude and the ability to ignore the tiny lollipop-head next to you has certainly has taken you far.
