Michael Strahan won’t be around the Live! set much longer. The host will be leaving the show in just a matter of weeks.

“May 13 is his last show,” a source tells PEOPLE. “He’ll take the summer off and GMA can integrate him early before September, and this will give Live! more time to find the co-host. He’s totally fine with that. Now he can enjoy his summer.”

ABC released a statement to PEOPLE about the host’s early depature: “After meeting with the producers of both Live! and Good Morning America, and after speaking with Kelly and Michael, we have decided on a plan that best advantages both shows for the future.”

The statement continues, “To that end, Michael’s last day on Live! will be on Friday, May 13, which not only gives the show the chance to have a nice send-off for him during the May book, but to also immediately begin the on-air search for a new co-host.”

Strahan is set to start working at GMA, full-time, this September.
