Elisabeth Hasselbeck reportedly leaving 'The View'
UPI News Service, 03/08/2013
Elisabeth Hasselbeck, the lone conservative on the 5-host panel of "The View" in New York, has been told her contract will not be renewed, UsMagazine.com said.
The report comes one day after "View" co-host Joy Behar, 70, confirmed she is leaving the show after 16 seasons to pursue other projects, including performing her standup comedy act and writing a play.
Hasselbeck, 35, will be departing after nine seasons.
"The viewers they polled all said she was too extreme and right-wing," a show insider whose name was not reported told UsMagazine.com about Hasselbeck Friday.
"People did not watch the show because of Elisabeth. So they told her yesterday her contract would not be renewed."
