The View's conservative voice will continue to ring out.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck is staying on The View, the show's co-creator Barbara Walters said Monday, in the wake of a magazine report indicating Elisabeth's days on the show's were numbered.

"There is a particularly false story that keeps getting picked up about Elisabeth's departure," Walters said on Monday's show. "We value her and appreciate point of view.

"She helps keep the show balanced. We have no plans for Elisabeth to leave the show."

The Riverside, Rhode Island native, 35, has been a member of the panel since 2003 after gaining fame on Survivor.

Last week, Joy Behar, 70, announced she'd be leaving the show after 16 years.

Walters told Joy Monday, "When you announced this last week it was very bittersweet. I want what’s best for you -- I want what’s best of all of you -- but I will miss you."
