Michael Strahan is ditching Live with Kelly and Michael for a full-time gig onGood Morning America.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Strahan -- who has made semiweekly appearances on the morning show since 2014 -- will begin his full-time GMA duties in September.

The former New York Giants defensive end, who also works as an analyst on Fox NFL Sunday, joined Live in 2012 after longtime co-host Regis Philbin left. He immediately became a beloved daytime personality, and his chemistry with co-host Kelly Ripa resulted in a huge ratings increase for the series. Strahan is expected to leave Live over the summer.
"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," Strahan said in a statement. "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."
