Whoopi Goldberg to Return for ‘The View’ Season 21 (EXCLUSIVE)

Teta, who spent 11 years on “The Late Show With David Letterman,” has been the co-executive producer of “The View” since 2015. “The View” has seen a spike in ratings this year, averaging 2.8 million viewers — its best numbers in three years. The show has focused more on political stories under Donald Trump’s presidency.

In a memo circulated to the staff on Friday morning, ABC News president James Goldston wrote: “Brian has created some of ‘The View’s’ most talked about breakout moments, from an epic Flashback Friday with the original co-hosts to the memorable ‘The Trumps: A Love Story,’ and he was the creative force behind five outstanding shows from Animal Kingdom this spring.”

Goldston added: “Brian will continue to lead our segment producing team and to manage the studio floor, working in tandem with Candi as she guides the show from the control room and sets the tone for the broadcast. They’ve been hard at work developing big plans for Season 21 so that we continue to give our viewers something to talk about each day.”

Season 21 of “The View” starts on Tuesday, with moderator Whoopi Goldberg and co-hosts that include Joy Behar, Sara Haines, Paula Faris, Sunny Hostin, and Jedediah Bila.

    These producers did a phenomenal job last year with this show. I’m sure this guy had a lot to do with it. Hoping they start rolling out the candidates for the next election as soon as possible and continuing keeping a focus on politics. Would like to have an anti gun person on the panel. Can’t wait for next season for all the same women to be back.
    This show has definitely improved immensely. I love that Joy doesn’t mince words and Whoopi is like a televeganglist to me, such a powerful speaker. Sunny to me is like a current version of Oprah, I just love her. So good to have such a quality show on TV. Thank you ABC

    It says he’s been co-executive producer since 2015 so why is this article’s title acting like he was promoted recently?
