"Everyone, whether it's politicians, or Tom Cruise, they feel safe sitting down with her," Keck says. Her friendly demeanor has earned her interviews with everyone from Frank Sinatra, to George Burns, to the Obamas.
On Friday's show, ET ran through several highlights of Hart's tenure on the show. Hart's most poignant moments included her interviews with Elizabeth Taylor, Michael Jackson, Paul McCartney and Ringo Star, Richard Pryor, and the 9/11 shows.
Hart has previously said she was born to work at ET stating, "The very first time somebody put a microphone in front of my face, I knew I wanted to be on the other end of the microphone. And here I am now, doing what I love to do."
In recognition of Hart, an assembly of 200 staffers and co-hosts created and aired a music video that took viewers throughout the Hollywood ET headquarters.
The show will continue with Nancy O'Dell replacing Hart in the co-host chair.
Hart said, “It's time to move on,” in regards to her departure. But when asked what will be next, Hart replied, "I don't know."
