The contract is up for the daytime talk show host, 70, and she has told ABC that she's moving on to hopefully host a new interview show, according to Deadline.com. Friday's Good Morning America, which, like The View, airs on ABC, also announced her departure.
Behar is the second-to-last cast original cast member to remain on the show since it first aired 16½ years ago. Should Behar leave, Barbara Walters will be the only one remaining.
Behar celebrated a major milestone that took place during her years on the program: marrying her longtime boyfriend, Steve Janowitz in 2011. She discussed the nuptials on a Sept. 6 episode of the show.
Her other project these days is her Current TV show, Joy Behar: Say Anything! It debuted in 2012.
