LOS ANGELES — Sherri Shepherd said Thursday that she’s leaving “The View” after seven years as a host, a sign of upheaval at the daytime talk show after creator Barbara Walters’ retirement from on-camera duties last month.

Shepherd said in a written statement that after “careful consideration” she has decided it’s time to move on.

According to a person familiar with the situation, Shepherd was negotiating a new contract, and she and ABC failed to reach an agreement. The person spoke on condition of anonymity.
