Longtime liberal radio talk show host Bill Press is ending his daily program at the end of the month, he announced Thursday on Twitter.

"In case you missed it: We’ve had a great 14 year run of daily shows, but it’s time to transition," Press, 79, wrote to his more than 32,000 followers. "The last daily show will be May 31, but don’t worry! My voice will still front and center as we enter the 2020 election. Big news coming soon!"

Press, who is also an opinion contributor for The Hill, has been in broadcasting for more than 50 years. "The Bill Press Show" has been airing since 2005.

Press has also worked at CNN and MSNBC, most notably as a co-host of CNN's debate program, "Crossfire," from 1996-2002.

He also has been involved in politics, which included a stint as California Democratic Party chairman from 1993 to 1996.

Several media members paid tribute to Press and his program on Twitter.

Politico reports that Press will launch a podcast in June with a focus on the 2020 presidential election.
