Behar's contract on ABC's long-running daytime talk show is up in August, and she has informed the network that she will not renew it as she looks forward to doing other things.
"It seemed like the right time," Behar tellsDeadline.com. "You reach a point when you say to yourself, 'Do I want to keep doing this?' There are other things on my plate I want to do — I've been writing a play, I've been neglecting my standup."
But Behar doesn't plan to leave the talk-show genre altogether. "I do like talk shows, I'm interested in talking to people," she says. "I want to do an intelligent talk show where you have room to breathe." In addition to The View, Behar has hosted her own shows on HLN and now Current TV, which will end with the network's takeover by Al Jazeera. As for rumors surrounding Behar meeting with new CNN topper Jeff Zucker, Behar remains coy, saying only she indeed had "a positive meeting" with Zucker and that "CNN would be great place" for her next show.
Aside from co-creator/executive producer Barbara Walters, Behar is the last remaining original cast member of The View. The two began by alternating as the fourth co-host before Behar was named a full-time co-host.
