Report: Elisabeth Hasselbeck Fired from ‘The View’
NEW YORK (KTLA) — Fresh off the announcement that Joy Behar is leaving “The View,” Us Weekly reported that Elisabeth Hasselbeck has been fired from the daytime talk show.
Hasselbeck joined the cast in November 2003.
According to Us Weekly, research shows that she is not popular with TV audiences and the viewers that they polled said she was too extreme and right wing.
Hasselbeck was reportedly told yesterday that her contract will not be renewed, according to the report.
More changes could be in store for “The View” — the Daily News is reporting that the show’s creator, Barbara Walters, is considering stepping down.
