"The View," recipient of the 2003 Daytime Emmy® Award for "Outstanding Talk Show," is ABC Daytime's morning chatfest, featuring a team of dynamic women of different ages, experiences and backgrounds discussing the most exciting events of the day. The program has received critical acclaim since premiering August 11, 1997. It's broadcast live weekdays from New York City (11:00 a.m.-12:00 noon, ET; CLOSED-CAPTIONED; broadcast in stereo; TV-14).
"The View" features Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy. "The View" consists of hot topics in the news, the best experts in their field, celebrity interviews and general entertainment. The program is now in its 17th season on ABC.
The 2013-2014 season will mark Barbara Walters farewell season on the daytime show she created as she celebrates her final year on broadcast television. Ms. Walters' unparalleled career began in 1961 as a writer and on-the-air reporter for the "Today Show."
In September, 2008, the show launched a highly successful "Red, White & View" campaign highlighting interviews and informational segments that helped promote civic responsibility during the election season. The "Red, White & View" campaign was another example of how "The View" established itself as an important player in the political process. "For politicians, 'The View,' on ABC is a halfway house in between a CNN interrogation and the razzing of 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'"(The New York Times, March 2008). "You Need to Know about ('The View') because all the political candidates show up on it eventually, and the panelists engage one another in some of the sharpest and most intensely publicized conversations about various matters of urgent public concerns" (Arkansas-Democrat Gazette, August 2008).
