Michael Strahan Announces Departure From 'Live!' for 'Good Morning America'

Looks like Kelly Ripa will be starting the search for another co-host!

Michael Strahan has announced that he will be leaving Live! With Kelly and Michael to join Good Morning America as a full time co-anchor this fall.

"I look forward to continuing to work with the incredible team at GMA," Michael said in a statement. "It is an exciting opportunity to be able to bring unique stories and voices to the audience." He also added: "My time with Live! With Kelly and Michael has been transformative, and my departure will be bittersweet."

The former NFL pro was balancing work with GMA twice a week since 2014, while co-hosting Live with Kelly at the same time. However, he definitely still gave her love, and was appreciative of having her as a co-host for the past four years. "Kelly has been an unbelievable partner, and I am so thankful to her and the entire team. I am extremely grateful for the amazing support I've received from all of the fans."

Happy for Michael's transitioning to another position, but will miss his and Kelly's hosting chemistry on Live! They definitely made a great team. Best wishes to him, though!

What do you think of Michael's departure?
