Abby Huntsman Exits ‘Fox & Friends’ Franchise To Join ‘The View’

The hiring of Huntsman won't come as a huge surprise to any who keep tabs on the latest View news, as rumor had it back in July that Huntsman was in the running to fill Sara Haines' vacancy.

The hiring of Huntsman comes in the wake of The View bidding adieu to both co-host Sara Haines (who with Michael Strahan will co-anchor Good Morning America's new, Chew-replacing third hour, GMA Day, starting September 10) and part-time panelist Paula Faris (who left the talker in July).

She currently co-hosts "Fox & Friends Weekend" - and now Abby Huntsman is leaving her current network to join the cast of "The View" on ABC.

Pochettino Without At Least 6 Players For Newcastle Trip
If Spurs decide not to cash in, they must attempt to try and get Alderweireld to commit to a new deal. We didn't sell players and with 25 in the squad it is hard to add.

When reached for comment, Fox News confirmed this will be Huntsman's last weekend hosting the Saturday and Sunday editions of the network's flagship morning program.

Huntsman's father, Jon Huntsman Jr., serves as U.S. ambassador to Russian Federation under President Donald Trump. She disliked it so much she considered finding a new dream career path that wasn't in television according to Elle.

Huntsman, who is 32 years old, will be a welcome addition to "The View" for conservatives as she provides a second right-leaning voice to the show. "I wasn't done being grateful and pinching myself for just sitting at this table", she said. Current co-hosts include Joy Behar, Whoopi Goldberg, Meghan McCain, and Sunny Hostin. That way, if anything happens, I'm ready to go.
