Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s Last Day on The View Is Today (July 10): Report
The tribe has spoken for former Survivor player Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who is leaving The View to co-host Fox & Friends.
According to Us Weekly, Elisabeth's last day is today (Wednesday, July 10). She's been on The View since November 2003, after guest-hosting for former co-host Lisa Ling.
In a press release sent July 9, Fox News chairman and CEO Roger Ailes discussed Elisabeth's move to Fox & Friends. "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."
Elisabeth added, "I have been a longtime 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."
Will you miss Elisabeth on The View? Should she be followed by someone with a similar conservative viewpoint? It will be interesting to see how the panel looks next year, since Joy Behar is also leaving and Barbara Walters is retiring in 2014.
