Exiting 'Fox & Friends' host could be headed to 'The View'

10 August 2018

"Fox & Friends Weekend" co-host Abby Huntsman is leaving the network, reportedly to join ABC's "The View". Her father also served as U.S. Ambassador to China under President Obama.

She had a hand getting started in the industry with a behind-the-scenes job at Good Morning America when she was 16.

"This has been a dream I've always had to be on this show", she said of The View. After careful consideration, and the opportunity to try again on a different show with a different role, she discovered she was right all along in choosing television as her journalistic medium.

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). But you just want to be polished. "I'm honored to go down with this brand sitting behind me every day". I'm not going to sit in a makeup chair for an hour and be like, "Then I'll go get the story".
