Elisabeth Hasselbeck is leaving “The View” for a different morning-show set.
Hasselbeck will join Fox News Channel’s morning show “Fox & Friends” in the fall. She’ll replace Gretchen Carlson, who is getting her own afternoon show on FNC.
The deal came together rather quickly: Hasselbeck’s final day on “The View” is Wednesday (July 10).
“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,” Fox News CEO Roger Ailes tells Page Six, which broke the news of Hasselbeck’s departure.
