Can you believe The View has been around for 16 years? 16 years…that’s incredible. And after sitting around and talking about current events and pop culture for all those years, Joy Behar is ready to leave the show behind.
Says ABC in an official statement posted on The View‘s website:
“Joy Behar has been instrumental in the success of The View from the very beginning. We wish her all the best in this next chapter, and are thrilled that we have her for the remainder of the season.”
Her departure from the series will leave Barbara Walters as the only host on the panel who’s been around since the premiere episode. Commenting on her upcoming departure from the show when her contract expires in August, Behar told Deadline: “It seemed like the right time. You reach a point when you say to yourself, ‘Do I want to keep doing this?’ There are other things on my plate I want to do — I’ve been writing a play, I’ve been neglecting my standup.”
