“Trading Spaces” host Paige Davis is leaving the show, TLC confirmed Monday. In a statement, TLC said the show will change to an unhosted format that will “enable the show to be more spontaneous, focus more on the homeowners and designers, and create alternative home trades in different cities and on opposite coasts.”

In a message posted on the show’s Web site, Ms. Davis wrote “I’ll be looking toward my next adventure and what will hopefully be a bright future. … I am sure that ‘Trading Spaces’ will still be a fabulous and fun show for all of you to watch.”

Ms. Davis joined the show during its second season, in 2001. During the past year, ratings for “Trading Spaces” have dropped sharply, down more than 50 percent.
