Nicolle Wallace confirmed she is exiting ABC talk show The View on Thursday.
The 43-year-old political commentator emotionally addressed co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Raven-Symone and Michelle Collins on the program's final live episode before its summer hiatus.
"I never thought I would get this job in a million years," she admitted. "I was more surprised to get it than I would have been to not get it. I would have been more surprised if they had kept me around because I am the original political nerd."
"I have loved being a part of this table," she declared. "I have loved sitting in this chair. And it was never mine, but I'm lucky I got to occupy it for a little bit." Wallace then shared her love for her co-hosts, encouraging Raven-Symone to keep talking about politics.
