With Barbara Walters set to retire in the summer of 2014, co-host Sherri Shepherd is reportedly looking for another place of employment.

According to Radar Online.com, Shepherd is "worried about her job" and is looking for other job opportunities.

The 46-year-old actress and personality became a reoccurring guest co-host on The View in 2006 and transitioned to a permanent co-host in Sept. 2007.

"Sherri is quietly looking for new opportunities," a source revealed. "While it may just be a precaution, Sherri is worried she'll be out of a job after Barbara leaves."

As far as what types of gigs Shephard is looking in to, she wants to stay on television and is interested in even having her own talk show.

"Before Barbara leaves, she'll want to make sure the panel is perfect and Sherri is concerned that could mean letting a few people go," the source added.

Walters appeared on the Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday and dished on which panelist from The View she misses the least.

"I've narrowed it down to Rosie O'Donell and Star Jones. Walters burst into a fit of giggles and quipped, "They're both sort of laid-back, quiet and easygoing," she said. "I happen to be fond of both of them, which you will not believe. They are very talented women."

But despite her differences with panelists, Walters said they act like sisters.

"You cannot have that show and work as closely as we have if you don't [like each other]," Walters said. "The View was my creation and I wanted to show that women did like each other and women could talk to each other."
