Marie Osmond is saying goodbye to The Talk.
After a year with the ladies on the daytime talk show, Osmond announced Wednesday she will be stepping away from her role of co-host.
Osmond originally joined the show in 2019 following the exit of longtime host Sara Gilbert. The news comes on the heels of the series preparing to launch its 11th season. Osmond is not the only member exiting, it was also announced that executive producer and showrunner John Redmann, who had been with the show since its beginnings, is leaving.
“Marie is a consummate professional, and we thank her for sharing her personal experiences, insight, as well as incredible talents, with our audience,” CBS said in a statement. “We will miss her humor, kindness and good nature, and wish her much success in her future endeavors.”

Osmond will continue to work with Redmann on future projects for ViacomCBS.
“One of the highlights of my year at The Talk was working with my dear friend John Redmann, and I’m excited to continue our working relationship on several projects we are developing,” said Osmond. “Also, my husband and I just dropped our last two kids off at college, we looked at each other, laughed and remembered we hadn’t been this alone together since 1982! So, at this stage of my life, I’m looking forward to spending more time with him and visiting all the kids/grandkids.”
Osmond also has several movies in development at Lifetime.
