The only conservative host of ABC’s daytime talk show “The View” is out.
Jedediah Bila announced on Monday that she was leaving the show.
“This is my last day at The View,” Bila announced to the surprise of the audience who gasped at the news.
“This has just been an amazing journey and I appreciate all of you. I want to thank the viewers, even the ones that write me hate tweets,” she said.
“What you don’t know about us is these ladies are really friends,” she said of the liberal panel of co hosts. “You put up with me and I appreciate all of you.”
It was easy to put up with her because Bila, a Never Trumper, regularly sided against President Donald Trump with her fellow panelists.
Bila is engaged to be married, but did not give any reason for her departure.
Show executives Hilary Estey McLoughlin, Candi Carter and Brian Teta sent a note to the show’s staff confirming Bila’s departure.
“As some of you heard this morning at our meeting, we have some bittersweet news to share. Jed is leaving our show, and today is her last day. She has new opportunities on the horizon, including her new book,” the note, obtained by the New York Post’s Page Six, read.
“She’s been a spirited voice at the table over the past year, asking smart questions and challenging us all to think. We want to thank Jed very much for all of her contributions and wish her great success with the next step in her career. She will always be part of ‘The View’ family, and we’ll welcome her back to talk about her new projects. Please join us in thanking Jed for her hard work, her dedication and her voice at the table.”
