Kelly Ripa, the host of Live with Kelly and Michael, will have to find a new co-host since Michael Strahan is leaving for Good Morning America.

The ABC morning show made the announcement on Twitter that Strahan, co-host of the show since 2012, would be taking on a full-time roll at GMA.

“Over the past two years on GMA, Michael’s proven to be a tireless and versatile broadcaster with an incredible ability to connect with people, from veterans and all kinds of newsmakers to a host of modern American cultural icons,” said ABC News president James Goldston in a statement.

“He is a great modern thinker and leader, and with our brilliant team in front of and behind the cameras, he will help us drive forward into a very exciting future.”

Strahan has done double-duty working on both Live and GMA and will join the morning crew full-time in September.
