Hasselbeck leaving View? Elisabeth Hasselbeck next to leave, says Us Weekly

NEW YORK - Elisabeth Hasselbeck is one of the most searched names on the internet Saturday because of rumors that she's not returning next season to ABC's "The View".

According to Friday's report on Us Weekly, a source said Hasselbeck's contract will not be renewed because of market research, indicating that her "conservative voice" is not a popular part of the show.

She joined the daytime talk show in 2003 and is well-known for being a finalist on the reality TV show "Survivor".

Hasselbeck's colleague, Joy Behar, announced Thursday that she's leaving after 16 years on the show.

Her last day will be in August at the end of the season.

The other co-hosts are Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, and Sherri Shepherd.

A representative for the show responded to the Hasselbeck rumor by saying she's a "valued member" and has a long term contract, reported Us Weekly.

So will she stay or will she go?
