Fox News host Abby Huntsman is officially leaving the network to join The View, sources tell Mediaite.
Huntsman, who currently co-hosts Fox & Friends Weekend, is set to replace Sara Haines, who announced her departure from the long-running ABC show last week to join the third hour of Good Morning America.
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 addition to The View will add a second conservative voice to the panel show, less than a year after ABC poached another rising star from Fox News, a network known to cultivate them: Meghan McCain.
