Behar went on to host “The View,” where she has been since 2007. She is currently co-hosting alongside Whoopi Goldberg and Meghan McCain.

Behar is known for her work on the ABC news show, “The View,” but she was originally a panelist on “Good Morning America” from 1975 to 1978. At the time, she appeared alongside David Hartman and Burt Likins in addition to co-hosts Frank Reynolds and Charlie Gibson.

She returned to the program in 1983 as a guest anchor after Candice Bergen left it following an incident where she reportedly made rude comments about President Ronald Reagan’s age during his re-election campaign.

The next year, Behar became one of its permanent hosts despite many conservative viewers’ protestations due to her political beliefs (at the time). Behar was an original member of this famous morning show’s famous panel until being fired by ABC executives in 1975 because they didn’t want controversy surrounding their network’s top show.”
