After months of speculation, The View showrunner and co-creator Bill Geddie is departing the long-running talk show. Rachel Maddow Show executive producer and MSNBC Vice-President of Primetime Programming Bill Wolff will replace Geddie when The View's brand new season begins in September, according to multiple published reports.
ABC is desperately trying to revamp the show. This past May, Barbara Walters retired from appearing on-air on the program. Later, Sherri Shepherd quit following stalled contract negotiations and Jenny McCarthy was fired. ABC has confirmed former moderator Rosie O'Donnell will return next season alongside current wrangler Whoopi Goldberg.
