Joy Behar is leaving The View after a sixteen year run on the daytime talk show, ABC confirms.

"Joy Behar has been instrumental in the success of The View from the very beginning. We wish her all the best in this next chapter, and are thrilled that we have her for the remainder of the season," the rep said in a statement.

The TV journalist is looking to move on to other projects, which include writing a play and doing standup. She also has her own shows on HLN and Current TV. On top of it all, she is rumored to be in talks with CNN president Jeff Zucker on an unnamed project.

We're sad to see her go, but at least we still have Barbara Walters!
