ABC’s “The View” won’t be going live on Friday, June 30, or even on days following, as a new report states. This is supposedly because all five of the co-hosts, including; Sunny Hostin, Whoopi Goldberg, Ana Navarro, Sara Haines, Joy Behar, and Alyssa Farah Griffin, are all on hiatus at the current moment.

“New episodes of The View will return on Monday, July 10. In the meantime, we hope they are soaking in the summer sun and attending as many barbecues as they can during their week off,” Decider wrote, the report further added that the show will air reruns during their time off.

Last week, Whoopi Goldberg announced “a new man behind the camera” through held back tears.
Goldberg opened the segment up with an announcement; there have been a few changes in the network and show, which included a new crew at “The View.”
Before beginning the usual discussion, Goldberg took a moment to introduce the newest member on the crew.
“We got a new man behind the camera. Hey Paul,” She said, as the other members of the table followed, saying “Hi, Paul.” The table further spoke about the writer’s strike that has taken down many shows in Hollywood.
As the show was coming to a close, while welcoming the viewers back from the commercial break, Whoopi held up a notecard that was to as a producer if this was now the moment she was dreading – the announcement of Rob Bruce Baron’s exit, the producer of the show.
Baron has been working in television for more than forty years, and spent all twenty-six seasons of “The View” working for them.
“Is this this? Ohh, yeah,” she said, staring at the notecard and tears in her eyes.
“Rob is retiring today after 40 years in television. Rob has been with The View since Day 1, 26 seasons.”
“Don’t leave!” Whoopi told Rob as she held back tears.
The show was all over the news when Whoopi claimed that “American Idol” was the “beginning of the downfall of society,” which further brought on a dispute from executive producer Brian Teta and some backlash from her own colleagues.
This whole ordeal started with Goldberg beginning a segment, going into detail about a 18-year-old Hawaii-born singer Iam Tongi winning Season 21 of “American Idol.”
“We, as a society, love to watch stuff to judge folks,” Goldberg said. “You know, I’ve always thought that the beginning of the downfall of society was with ― what’s the name of that show? I always tell you that,” she continued on, looking at Teta.
“ABC’s ‘American Idol,’” Retorted Teta as the crowd began to laugh. ABC notably is also the network that airs “The View.”
