Jedediah Bila announced on Monday morning she is leaving "The View."
"What you don't know is today is my last day at 'The View,'" Bila revealed after the first commercial break.
"This has been an amazing journey and I appreciate all of you," Bila told her co-hosts. "I want to thank the viewers, even though the ones that send me hate tweets."
Bila did not elaborate on her abrupt exit but she did say she has several other projects in the works including an untitled book.
"You should stay tuned. There’s some good stuff on the way," Bila teased adding the book is "going to shake up the world, especially the millennial generation."
Co-host Joy Behar noted, "It's great to have you here, because we need to have somebody who disagrees... Jed has been good for the show."
Sunny Hostin chimed in, "We rarely agree on anything...but I am honored to call you a friend."
Sara Haines added, "And you break down an issue really clearly… You push the heart, bring the head… I’ve learned so much from you."
Bila also noted, "You gave me a voice even when you didn’t agree with me. You gave me an opportunity to share my voice, and that means more to me than anything."
Bila first joined the ABC talk show in Season 19 as a guest co-host and was made full time panelist for Season 20.
