Keke Palmer is trying her hand at a new endeavor – cohosting the third hour of “Good Morning America” alongside Michael Strahan and Sara Haines. Now, she’s opening up about what this new move means for her career.

While walking the red carpet at MTV’s Video Music Awards on Monday, Palmer stopped to chat with ET’s Keltie Knight about her new gig.

“For me, it’s something that I’ve wanted to do for a long time. I had my talk show, ‘Just Keke,’ when I was like 19 or 20, and now 26 to be working on this platform with such great people, it’s just been a long time coming and full circle being with Disney again,” she said.

But Palmer isn’t about to give up her other interests in the name of being one of the cohosts on the show. “ABC gets me. Disney gets me,” she said. “They always have had talent that are multi-faceted.”

She goes on to say that even Michael Strahan is often tackling many projects at once, and it’s never stopped him.

Where can fans see Palmer next? She’s starring alongside Cardi B, Jennifer Lopez, Constance Wu, and Lili Reinhart in the upcoming film “Hustlers.” The movie is set to hit theaters on September 13th.
