With ABC becoming full owner of "The View," after buying out Barbara Walters' stake over the summer, the network announced today that the daytime talker will now fall under the purview of ABC News after more than 17 years under the entertainment division, this despite a drastic makeover this fall with the inclusion of three new hosts joining Whoopi Goldberg on the panel. With the talk show now falling under the umbrella of the news division, “General Hospital" and "The Chew" remain the only entertainment programming airing during the daytime on the network.
In May, Disney-ABC Domestic Television announced plans to launch a new syndicated talk show featuring actress and model Tyra Banks for consideration for Fall 2015.
