Rosie O'Donnell leaving "The View"

NEW YORK (AP) -- A-B-C has announced that Rosie O'Donnell is leaving "The View" after only one controversial season.

The network wasn't able to come to terms on another contract with O'Donnell.

Her last day will be sometime in the middle of June.

Barbara Walters says she's "grateful" that O'Donnell spent a year with the show. She says she's "sad" O'Donnell is going.

The president of A-B-C's daytime programming says they knew when they first hired O'Donnell that anything longer than a one-year stay would be "gravy." He hopes O'Donnell will do a series of one-hour specials for the network and maybe even guest-host once in a while.
