Tim Tebow hasn’t taken an NFL snap in more than 13 months, but the new ESPN analyst has been making the rounds on television.

On Friday, the quarterback turned TV personality will co-host Good Morning America, according to Marisa Guthrie of The Hollywood Reporter.

ABC spokeswoman Alison Bridgman confirmed the report to USA TodayGMA is on ABC, which, like ESPN, is owned by Disney.

Tebow joined ESPN in December and made his debut on Jan. 6 in the lead up to the BCS National Championship Game.

“As someone who’s positive, I’d love to continue to be someone who is positive,” Tebow said about his mentality as an analyst. “I’d also like to be objective. I’ve never had a hard time saying what I believe.”

GMA‘s set is in Times Square, which has been converted into “Super Bowl Boulevard” this week in honor of Super Bowl XLVIII. Eli Manning will also be in studio on Wednesday, according to Guthrie.

“During the broadcast, Tebow will join with NFL All-Stars to challenge chef Emeril Lagasse to a Super Bowl snack cook off,” reports Chris Chase of USA Today.

Tebow was replaced as Denver’s starting quarterback by Peyton Manning before the 2012 season.
