After eight years at Los Angeles’ 97.1 AMP Radio, Carson Daly has decided to leave his job for three adorable reasons: his children. The former “TRL” host made the announcement via his Instagram Thursday morning.

“Today is my very last day on Amp Radio,” writes Daly. “The reason I’m going to stop doing radio for now is that I just want to have breakfast with my kids.”

Daly went on to say that he is “So lucky to have been on radio in my hometown,” and thank his fans for tuning in.

As for the fans, they seem to fully support him. As one Instagram user cleverly commented, “More bacon! Good move!”

A spokesperson from CBS Radio, which owns AMP Radio, provided the following statement to TheWrap on Daly’s decision to leave: “Carson is a valued member of CBS RADIO and we support and appreciate the difficult decision he made to strike the right balance for him and his family. While mornings on 97.1 AMP/ Los Angeles are no longer possible, we are thrilled to continue our long-standing relationship around his highly successful, syndicated weekend countdown show, ‘Daly Download,’ and look forward to other creative collaborations in the future.”
