Report: Hasselbeck Leaving ‘The View’

There’s soon to be a lot of room at The View table. Longtime host Elisabeth Hasselbeck will not be returning to the talk show next season after nine years, Us Weekly reports. The news comes on the heels of Joy Behar’s decision earlier this week to depart the show as well. Sources tell Us that market research revealed the conservative host’s lack of popularity with audiences, leading executives to decide not to renew her contract. Reached for comment, a rep for the show said, “Elisabeth Hasselbeck is a valued member of The View and has a long-term contract.”
