LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Change keeps coming to ABC's talk show "The View."

Its longtime executive producer, Bill Geddie, said in a statement Friday that he won't be involved in day-to-day production.

The shift comes as "The View" reshapes its panel of co-hosts for next season. Series creator Barbara Walters has retired from on-camera duties, while Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy won't be returning.

The final new episode with Shepherd and McCarthy airs Monday.

Remaining co-host Whoopi Goldberg will be joined this fall by Rosie O'Donnell, who's back for a second "View" stint. Other co-hosts have yet to be announced.

Geddie says he's "enormously proud" of the show he and Walters created 17 years ago.

ABC had no comment on a replacement for Geddie, who says he plans to help with the transition throughout the upcoming season.
