The Hollywood Walk of Fame is expanding into sports entertainment for the first time (which is news to me), and their first honoree is Michael Strahan.

Here’s what was said about the sports entertainment category and Strahan’s honor.
“We are very excited to inaugurate the first Sports Entertainment star for Michael Strahan,” stated Ana Martinez, Producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame. “Sports fans will be thrilled to be able to see their favorite sports figures who are involved in the entertainment business receive their stars. Michael’s extensive background in sports and sportscasting makes him the perfect choice to add to the famed sidewalk,” added Martinez.
I’m assuming that with Strahan getting a star and the “sports entertainment” category being created, we’ll see plenty of familiar faces getting stars going forward.
