It sounds like Joy Behar will be taking in The View from the sidelines.

The contract is up for the daytime talk show host, 70, and she has told ABC that she’s moving on to hopefully host a new interview show, according to Deadline.com.

Behar is the second-to-last original cast member to remain on the show since it first aired 16½ years ago. If she leaves, Barbara Walters will be the only remaining.

One of the biggest milestones she celebrated during her years on the program was marrying her longtime boyfriend, Steve Janowitz in 2011. She discussed the nuptials on a Sept. 6 episode of the show.

Her other project at the moment is her Current TV show, Joy Behar: Say Anything! It debuted in 2012.
