Co-Host Jedediah Bila Is Leaving 'The View'

Jedediah Bila is bidding farewell to “The View.”

Bila, who joined the talk show in August 2016, was a co-host alongside Whoopi Goldberg, Sunny Hostin, Joy Behar, Sara Haines and Paula Faris.

Jedediah told Monday's audience, "So this is my last day at ‘The View.’ I want to thank these ladies. What you don't know about us is that we're really friends... I want to thank you because I'm a little eccentric, and you put up with me, and this has been an amazing journey. And I appreciate all of you. I want to thank the viewers, even the ones that write me hate tweets. This is what I'm here for. I want to shake things up in life and in television."

Next up, the former Fox News contributor, who is engaged to Jeremy Scher, will be working on a book, among other projects.

Bila said, "This has been a really great experience, and mostly, I just want to speak to the viewers and say we are nothing without you. We are able to do what we do because you invite us into your homes... It's about a conversation. It's about serious issues, and it's about the fact that you care enough to hear what we have to say. And that I appreciate more than any executive or any position that I could hold!"

ABC told E! News in a statement, "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."
