Elisabeth Hasselbeck Leaves ‘View,’ Heads to ‘Fox & Friends’
“The View’s” conservative panelist Elisabeth Hasselbeck is officially departing the ABC show and will be co-hosting the FOX News morning show, “Fox & Friends.”
The cable news network made the announcement on Tuesday, reports the Hollywood Reporter. FOX News Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes said, “Elisabeth’s warm and engaging personality made her a star on ‘The View.’ She has proven to be an excellent conversationalist and I am certain she will make a great addition to our already successful morning franchise.”
Hasselbeck will join current “Fox & Friends” co-hosts Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade this fall. Current co-host Gretchen Carlson is leaving to host her own one-hour daytime series.
