Shepherd said in a released statement:
It’s been seven wonderful years on The View and after careful consideration it is time for me to move on. I am extremely grateful to Barbara Walters and Bill Gedde for giving me the opportunity. I look forward to the business opportunities that lay ahead for me and I am incredibly grateful to my View family and my fans for supporting me on this journey.
The View will be moving in an exciting new direction next season and ABC has made decisions to evolve the show creatively.
