Report: Joy Behar Set To Leave HLN At Year’s End

Deadline.com is reporting tonight that Joy Behar will be leaving her HLN show, which she’s hosted since 2009, by the end of the year. Behar’s show is doing well for the network, second in ratings only to Nancy Grace‘s program.

But leaving her show doesn’t mean Behar isn’t open to considering a new project with Turner Broadcasting, the parent company to both HLN and CNN:

Comedian-writer-actress Behar will continue as a co-host of ABC’s The View, where she is under a long-term deal, while also exploring new opportunities, possibly within HLN’s parent company Turner Broadcasting.

An “insider” is quoted as saying that “It just felt it was time for everyone.”
