Adding to the major changes "The View" is already undergoing, the show revealed Thursday that it is also getting an entirely new set and logo.
"The View" is moving from the studio that it has had for the past 17 years, and into the former studio for Katie Couric's daytime show a few blocks away. Deadline reported that a new "in-the-round" set will be place the audience around Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie O'Donnell and their co-hosts. The show seems to want to be more interactive, because the new set is also said to include an "on-camera social media station."
The show tweeted about the changes, as well as its new logo.

It really is a total overhaul for "The View," which now has Bill Wolff at the helm at executive producer. The show has yet to announce new co-hosts to replace Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy, but has fueled plenty of speculation about who might get a seat at the roundtable come September.
