Jedidah Bila has announced her departure from The View.

The 38-year-old TV personality barely lasted a year on the show. She joined the program in August 2016. The panelist often fell on a different side of a political spectrum than the other cohosts on The View

Bila said she was working on a book, and said that she had "a lot of opportunities" to consider in the future. 

Joy Behar, Whoopi Goldberg, Paula Faris, Sara Hines, and Sunny Hostin remain on the show's panel.

Meanwhile, ABC has not announced a replacement for Bila. Meghan McCain's name has been floated around as a possible replacement for Bila, but the network has declined to comment.
