Sherri Shepherd, longtime former co-host of The View, is set to join Fox syndicated series Dish Nation as co-host in August. She had served guest stints on the entertainment show in November and December of 2019
The addition of Shepherd is part of The View overhaul this summer as ABC News is looking to reignite the veteran daytime talk show to its former ratings glory after a turbulent 18th season, the first without co-creator Barbara Walters.
Will Sherri Shepherd or Joy Behar be lured back to The View? One of them will, if ABC brass have anything to say about it. They have approached the former View hosts about the prospect of returning to the faltering show. And Rosie O’Donnell is out of the loop.
A short time after Sherri Shepherd announced her exit from ABC’s The View on Thursday, Jenny McCarthy made her own departure announcement. ABC declined to discuss Shepherd or McCarthy’s status but issued a statement saying change is ahead for the show, which is on hiatus but returns in July to finish out the current season. Whoopi Goldberg is the only host left in place.
