Ling to leave The View


Lisa Ling, youngest of the five women on ABC chatfest The View, will
leave the show in early December to join National Geographic Television &
Film as a reporter.

Ling has been with the broadcast for three years.

A full-time replacement won't be named until next year.

In the meantime, the show will rely on guests to fill Ling's spot, most of whom have made past appearances, such as Linda Dano and
Whoopi Goldberg.
