Say goodbye to Michael Strahan on LIVE! with Kelly and Michael. The former football star is exiting the morning show to become a full-time correspondent on Good Morning America.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Strahan, who has appeared on GMA twice a week since 2014, will go full-time starting September. 

Strahan released the following statement to THR:

 I look forward to continuing to work with the incredible team at GMA. It is an exciting opportunity to be able to bring unique stories and voices to the audience.  My time with LIVE with Kelly and Michael has been transformative, and my departure will be bittersweet. 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. 

 Strahan joined LIVE in 2012 after Regis Philbin retired in 2011. Look for the syndicated talk show to audition co-hosts for Kelly Ripa this fall.
