Jedediah Bila—the lone conservative host on "The View"—announced on Monday that this morning's show would be her last appearance on the talk show. Bila, 38, first appeared on the show during its 19th season, and she became a permanent host during the show's 20th season.

During the 10th episode of the 21st season, Bila revealed on air that she wouldn't be returning to the show for the next episode. She did not give a specific reason for her abrupt departure.  

“So this is my last day at ‘The View,’” said Bila. “This has just been an amazing journey and I appreciate all of you. I want to thank the viewers, even the ones that write me hate tweets.”

Bila also shared that she's in the process of writing a book. 

She added, “This has been a really great experience, and mostly I just want to speak to the viewers and say we are nothing without you.”

After her announcement, the producers at "The View" tweeted a statement about Bila's departure. They expressed their appreciation of her for all she'd done while on the show. 

"She's been a spirited voice at the table over the past year, asking smart questions and challenging us all to think," said Hilary, Candi, and Brian. "We want to thank Jed very much for all of her contributions and wish her great success with the next step in her career."
