(CNN) - Sean Spicer may step down from the White House podium.

A White House official said Monday they're considering a new role for the current press secretary.

Spicer has delivered remarks in the white house briefing room for six months, although his time at the podium in recent weeks has decreased.

Spicer's style was parodied by actress Melissa McCarthy in several Saturday Night Live skits.

The White House official said the timeline for the change in Spicer's role is fluid.
