The changes continue for the ABC daytime talk staple “The View,” which is working to regain its ratings momentum after the May 2014 retirement of show founder Barbara Walters.

In the latest development, ABC News announced that the show has tapped Sarah de la O as director when the program returns for its 19th season in September. The announcement marks the first time in the show’s history that it will have a female director at the helm.

“Sarah de la O is a seven-time Emmy Award winner. She has extensive directorial experience including live talk shows and events,” ABC News said in its announcement. “Among her recent credits are VH1’s ‘Make a Band Famous,’ ‘E3 All Access Live’ for Spike, ‘Crowd Goes Wild’ with Regis Philbin, Bravo’s ‘Watch What Happens Live,’ ‘Big Morning Buzz’ on VH1 and red carpet coverage for the TV Guide Network. She has also served as director for ABC’s ‘Bachelor Pad,’ ‘After the Final Rose’ and ‘Bachelorette Men Tell All.’”

Executive producer Bill Wolff added: “We are very excited to have Sarah join the show. She has an excellent eye and a keen understanding of both visual presentation and editorial content.”

  1. The View is making a HUGE mistake of letting Nicolle Wallace go, they should let Raven go she noes nothing and is so childish. Keep Nicolle and let Raven go. Such a shame the show will go downhill quickly if you keep Raven on.

  2. It’s time to pull the plug and lick their collective wounds.

  3. The issue is not the director. It is loss of focus. Is it a news opinion show or a pop culture show? The viewers are confused and so are the hosts.
