She’s been on the show for 6 years but her time is coming to an end.

Aisha Tyler announced she is leaving “The Talk”.

She says she came to the decision due to her busy schedule.  

Think about it she’s on CBS’ Criminal Minds, she’s the host of  Whose Line Is It Anyway? and she voices a character on Archer.

Tyler is busy! 

She also says she’s diving into directing with a new film, Axis.

In her departure announcement she credited other rising female directors like Ava DuVernay as a reason for her decision to shift her focus.

The former CSI actress became very emotional when announcing the fact that she’s leaving the show at the end of the current season but her co-hosts were obviously in her corner.
