Elisabeth Hasselbeck To Join FOX News Channel As FOX & Friends Co-Host

FOX News Channel (FNC) has signed Elisabeth Hasselbeck of ABC’s The View as co-host of top-rated FOX & Friends (6:00-9:00 AM ET), announced Bill Shine, Executive Vice President of Programming for FOX News. She will join Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade on the curvy couch in mid-September. Current FOX & Friends co-host Gretchen Carlson will now anchor a one-hour signature daytime program beginning in early fall.

In commenting on the announcement, FOX News Chairman & CEO Roger Ailes said, “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.”

Hasselbeck added, "I have been a long-time fan of Fox & Friends and am excited to be joining their team in September as it is an honor to call the FOX News Channel my new television home.”

Since November 2003, Hasselbeck served as a co-host on the daytime Emmy award-winning talk show, The View, on ABC, created by Barbara Walters and Bill Geddie. She and her co-hosts were chosen as Time’s “100 Most Influential People in the World” in May 2009 and in July 2009, the program was ranked #11 on Forbes’ “30 of the Most Influential Women in Media.” Additionally, she was a keynote speaker at the Republican National Convention in both 2004 and 2008, and has interviewed Presidents Bush, Clinton and Obama. Hasselbeck is the author of two New York Times bestsellers, The G-Free Diet and the cookbook, Deliciously G-Free and has also served as a contributor to ABC’s Good Morning America since 2010.

ABC’s Barbara Walters commented, “We have had ten wonderful years with Elisabeth and she will now be swimming in new waters. We will miss her and wish her everything good.”
