Elizabeth Hasselbeck leaving 'The View'

“View” panel members are dropping like flies.

Days after Joy Behar announced she was leaving the daytime talk show. Now Elizabeth Hasselbeck has announced that she won’t be back for the series 17th season this fall.

ABC has not yet confirmed the news.

“Elizabeth Hasselbeck is a valued member of ‘The View’ and has a long- term contract,” a statement from a show rep.

Hasselbeck joined “The View” in 2003 after a stint on CBS’ “Survivor.” She became  one of the most divisive personalities on the program, as the only open conservative. She butted heads with Rosie O’Donnell and others on the show.

A “US Weekly” poll found viewers found her “too extreme and right wing,” and said people didn’t watch the show because of her. The “US Weekly” report said they told her that her contract would not be renewed.

Creator Barbara Walters will be the last original member of the daytime talker, which originally also featured Meredith Vieira, Star Jones and Debbie Matenopoulos in 1997. Walters has been appearing part-time for awhile now, and has recently had to take even more time off after suffering from chicken pox and a concussion.

The current “View” season will take the existing panel (also including Sherri Shepherd, Whoopi Goldberg and Barbara Walters) through August.
