"The Voice" coach Adam Levine is leaving the NBC reality competition after 16 seasons.

"The Voice" host Carson Daly announced the news during Friday's episode of "Today."

"After 16 seasons, Adam Levine, our beloved coach and friend, has decided to leave 'The Voice,'" Daly said.

"Adam was one of the original coaches that launched the show, winning the competition three times and inspiring many of the artists he worked so closely with," he added.

"He'll always be a cherished member of 'The Voice' family."

Gwen Stefani will replace Levine as coach in Season 17, joining Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson and John Legend.

Stefani, who is dating Shelton, previously served as coach in Seasons 7, 9 and 12.

Levine won "The Voice" three times -- with Javier Colon in Season 1, Tessanne Chin in Season 5 and Jordan Smith in Season 9.
