Time to say goodbye to another co-host of The View! Paula Faris took to Twitter on Wednesday, July 18, to reveal that she's leaving the talk show and her other weekend role on GMA at the end of August.
“Excited/grateful for the opportunity to cover big stories & talk to the people at the center of them. Thank you to the gracious teams at @GMA Sat./Sun. and @TheView. Not going far but I’ll miss you. However, I won’t miss that 3 a.m. wake up on weekends! ;)” she wrote on the social media platform.

The 42-year-old is leaving her two TV roles to take on a more breaking news position at ABC News starting in the fall. "She’s expanding her reporting portfolio to cover the most consequential stories of the day, help lead the charge on breaking news and focus on key bookings. She’ll continue to be an important part of the GMA family and appear across all of ABC News, and she’s gearing up for the launch of a podcast on faith to explore what unites people of all backgrounds even in these divisive times," the press release states.
It was previously rumored that Paula wasn't going to appear on the show for Season 20 because she was going to get fired, but she is staying through the end of Season 21. "ABC News was hoping [Paula] would bring a more conservative perspective to the show because she’s a conservative Christian. But she doesn’t own her opinions and the audience never connects with anyone who’s pretending,” a source revealed to Fox News at the the time.

However, Page Six has reported that leaving GMA and The View was solely Paula's choice. "She’s getting her weekends back," the insider told the news outlet.
It's unknown who will take Paula's spots at the end of the summer, but what we do know is that we'll miss her on the two shows so much!
