"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," the network said in a statement to Deadline Thursday.
Behar notified ABC she is not interested in renewing her contract, which ends in August, because she has other projects she would like to pursue, in particular a new talk show of her own, Deadline said.
