(CNN)-Joy Behar is changing her point of view.

She's leaving ABC's "The View" after her contract expires at the end of the current season.

This is the show's 16th season. And it wraps up in August.

Deadline-dot-com reports Behar told the network she would not be renewing for another season and is looking to move on to other things.

ABC has released a statement.

It reads: "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."
