Retired New York Giants defensive end and Pro Football Hall of Famer, Michael Strahan, is returning to host the 2019 Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards.

Strahan, who also appears on Good Morning America, Strahan and Sara, The $100,000 Pyramid and Fox NFL Sunday, hosted the inaugural Kids’ Choice Awards in 2014.

“Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Sports is a one-of-a-kind awards show that brings all-star athletes, kids and of course, slime together,” Strahan said Thursday in a statement. “When I hosted the first year of the show, I loved it — the energy, stunts, kids, crowd and slime … a lot of slime! Hosting this show has been one of my favorite things I’ve done, and this year is going to be the biggest, the baddest and the slimiest.”

The 2019 awards ceremony will be taped on July 11 and will air on August 10 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on Nickelodeon.

In addition to the announcement that Strahan will serve as host, Giants running back Saquon Barkley was also a first-time nominee in three categories, including “Favorite Football Player,” “Sickest Moves” and “Favorite Breakout Player.”

Former Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was also nominated in the “King of Swag” category.
