Elisabeth Hasselbeck Leaving The View?


By Michael Lewittes


Is Elisabeth Hasselbeck leaving “The View”?

Just one day after ABC announced the departure of co-host Joy Behar, it’s being reported that Hasselbeck will similarly exit the daytime talk show.

The rumor has not been confirmed.

Gossip Cop reached out to a network spokesperson, who tells us, “Elisabeth Hasselbeck is a valued member of ‘The View’ and has a long term contract.”

Hasselbeck joined the show in 2003, replacing journalist Lisa Ling.

She has sparred with a number of guests during her years on the series, including Bill Maher, whom she grilled for suggesting she be sent to Egypt in exchange for CBS News correspondent Lara Logan, who’d been assaulted while covering that country’s democratic uprising.

We will have updates on Hasselbeck’s status with “The View.”
