Elisabeth Hasselbeck Leaving "The View"

ABC(NEW YORK) -- Elisabeth Hasselbeck is leaving ABC’s The View and taking a role as a co-host on Fox News Channel’s Fox & Friends, Fox News announced and The View confirmed.

“I have been a long-time fan of Fox & Friends and am excited to be joining their team in September as it is an honor to call the Fox News Channel my new television home,” Hasselbeck said in a written Fox News Channel announcement.

Hasselbeck’s last day on The View will be Wednesday, according to ABC.

Hasselbeck joined The View as a co-host in November 2003. Her interviews on the show have included President Obama, Sen. John McCain, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and former presidents Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, according to her biography on The View’s website.

“For a decade, Elisabeth Hasselbeck has brought her passion and strong beliefs to The View,” ABC said in a statement. “We watched her journey from newlywed to motherhood, an Emmy Award-winning talk show host, author, entrepreneur and activist. She stood behind her political views even if they were not the most popular opinions at the table never shying away from voicing a difficult question.  We thank Elisabeth and wish her luck as she begins this new chapter of her career.”

Prior to The View, Hasselbeck was known to TV audiences for reaching the final four on the second season of Survivor.

“When Elisabeth survived Survivor, we wanted to make sure she would stay afloat,” said Barbara Walters, executive producer of The View. “We have had 10 wonderful years with her and she will now be swimming in new waters. We will miss her and wish her everything good.”

Hasselbeck will join Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade on the Fox News show in mid-September, the cable network announced, as current Fox & Friends co-host Gretchen Carlson moves to an anchoring position on her own one-hour daytime show.

“Elisabeth’s warm and engaging personality made her a star on The View,” Fox News Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes said in a written statement. “She has proven to be an excellent conversationalist and I am certain she will make a great addition to our already successful morning franchise.”
