The View has seen its share of host changes throughout the years. But the current hosts appear to be here to stay for some time.

Some lean liberally while others lean conservatively, which helps spark debate among the women and keep the show interesting. Some have been doing network television longer than others, but which of these women has the highest net worth? Here they are, ranked.
