After more than two decades on the air, The View shows no signs of slowing down.
The popular ABC daytime talk show has had a number of hosts over the years. (Remember Star Jones? Debbie Matenopoulos? Rosie O’Donnell — who trashed Trump long before it was popular to do so? And of course, the legendary Barbara Walters?) Some have stayed on longer than others, to be sure.
For example, did you know that Joy Behar was one of the original hosts of The View? And save for a two-season stint where she wasn’t on the air — seasons 17 and 18, to be precise — she’s also the longest-running co-host of the show?
Despite its various ups and downs, fans of the show know what they want — and they stick to it. There was no better example of this than when Whoopi Goldberg — one of The View‘s current hosts — was suspended from the show in January of 2022. According to The Sun, ratings for the show plummeted after the long-time actress made comments that were deemed “tone-deaf,” at best, regarding the Holocaust.
And while there was no shortage of calls for Goldberg to be fired, she ultimately kept her job — and the show’s ratings are just as strong as ever. The show also frequently becomes a trending topic on Twitter, and its hosts generate headlines for days to come after each episode.
That said, there are some hosts that make more money than others. Which host of The View has the highest net worth? Let’s take a look.
