HOUSTON – Ellen DeGeneres is ending her show, according to an exclusive report from The Hollywood Reporter.

The host and comedienne said, “I need something new to challenge me.”

DeGeneres will reportedly finish the show in 2022, the exclusive report said.

DeGeneres made headlines in 2020 when current and former employees for her talk show came out with accusations of a “toxic” work environment. About 10 employees anonymously spoke to BuzzFeed News about their experiences.

Following the allegations, DeGeneres apologized after an investigation of the show and vowed to make changes on the show.
