Elisabeth Hasselbeck Heads to Fox News; Tomorrow Is Final Day on ‘The View’

Hasselbeck to take Gretchen Carlson's spot on 'Fox & Friends'

After denying rumors about her departure for months, Elisabeth Hasselbeck will officially be ankling ABC’s “The View” for Fox News.

Tomorrow will be her last day on the veteran daytime skein.

“Survivor” alum and noted conservative, Hasselbeck is ankling the daytime talkshow for “Fox & Friends,” where she will replace Gretchen Carlson.

ABC said in a statement: “For a decade, Elisabeth Hasselbeck has brought her passion and strong beliefs to ‘The View.’ 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.”

“The View” co-host and exec producer Barbara Walters, who will depart the series at the end of this season, added: “When Elisabeth survived ‘Survivor’ we wanted to make sure she would stay afloat. 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, who initially rose to fame on 2001’s “Survivor: The Australian Outback,” joined “The View” in 2003 after multiple guest co-hosting stints, replacing Lisa Ling. The reality TV alum often butted heads with fellow deskmates over social and political issues during her tenure on the program, including with Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg.

Announcement follows news that Jenny McCarthy is currently in deep negotiation for Joy Behar’s spot on “The View,” which will open at the end of the summer.
