LOS ANGELES (AP) Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy are saying goodbye to "The View" next week.

ABC says their final appearance as co-hosts of the daytime talk show will air Monday.

The pre-taped episode celebrates Shepherd's seven years with the show. ABC said Thursday that gospel singers Yolanda Adams, Kirk Franklin and Donnie McClurkin perform a special song dedicated to Shepherd.

McCarthy received a lower-key farewell on Thursday's show, with highlight clips from her single season as co-host.

Shepherd and McCarthy said in June that they would be leaving "The View." It's part of the show's upheaval after creator Barbara Walters retired from on-camera duties.

The show will be in reruns starting Tuesday until its new season begins in September. There's been no announcement of who will join remaining co-host Whoopi Goldberg and the returning Rosie O'Donnell.
