“So in September, when everyone comes back for the new season, you might not be there.” Williams probed.
“No, probably not,” Goldberg said off-hand. “I have to [move on], baby, because I have to go and grow. I got stuff to do, I got movies I need to direct, I got books I got to finish.”
Goldberg, who has co-hosted the show since 2007, has maintained seniority over all the current hosts with the exception of Joy Behar, who joined the show in 1997 but left from 2013-15.
“This was great and I love doing it,” Goldberg continued. “But its been a while. They’re in their 20th season. They did this without me — I’ve been there for half of it but not all of it.”
Season 20 premiered on ABC Sept. 6 with many new additions to the panel of hosts, including Sara Haines, Sunny Hostin, and Jedediah Bila. Other hosts include Raven-Symoné, Candace Cameron Bure and Paula Faris.
In a recent interview with Variety, Goldberg commented that she wasn’t sure how long she would stay and that she is “taking things one day at a time.”
