In 1997, Barbara Walters teamed up with Bill Geddie to debut The View on ABC as part of the network's daytime programming block. Walters and Geddie both serve as the show's executive producers. The program features a panel of women as co-hosts. Along with Walters, the current panel includes Whoopi Goldberg, who serves as the moderator, Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, and Sherri Shepherd. As of the 2012–13 season, its 16th, The View is the fourth-longest running national daytime talk show in history.
