No more Love for Dr. Drew.

After hosting Loveline for 30 years, Dr. Drew Pinksy (affectionately known as simply Dr. Drew) announced on Thursday, April 21 that he would be leaving the radio show. The famous sex-advice series, which boasted guests like Courtney Love and Slash, will air Dr. Drew's last episode on April 28. The 57-year-old is looking to focus on other projects next.

He said in a statement (via Us Weekly): 

"I am not leaving radio. The Loveline brand is still strong and perhaps we will bring it back some day. But for now, this version is ending and I will be focusing on all of my other projects. It has been a privilege to have served the listeners and share deeply in personal stories. I am deeply grateful for this opportunity."

Dr. Drew currently has a gig on the HLN network and hosts his Dr. Drew Midday Live with Mike Catherwood show on Los Angeles radio. He's also gearing up for a new podcast called the Adam and Dr. Drew Podcast.

Throughout his time on Loveline, Dr. Drew expanded his sex-advice empire to include television (he starred in MTV's Loveline in the '90s, and now works on Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew, Sober House, and Sex Rehab With Dr. Drew), and books (he co-wrote The Dr. Drew and Adam Book: A Survival Guide to Life and Love with his longtime co-host Adam Carolla).
