Whoopi Goldberg will remain as a host on ‘The View’

By Jorie Goins,

Whoopi Goldberg is the last woman standing as the lone host of The View after the surprise exit of co-hosts Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy on Thursday.

Earlier we reported on Shepherd’s departure from the show, saying that Jenny McCarthy would be likely to follow. These predictions were confirmed tonight, when McCarthy tweeted “If Sherri goes, I go too.”

An ABC spokeswoman told The New York Daily News that "The View will be moving in an exciting new direction next season and ABC has made decisions to evolve the show creatively.”

This is just the latest development in a series of departures to befall The View in the last year. McCarthy joined the show in July as a replacement for Elisabeth Hassleback, who was unable to connect with viewers. Five months prior to Hasselback’s exit, longtime co-host Joy Behar left the show. Most recently, creator and co-host Barbara Walters retired from the show although she remains on as executive producer.
