Smart decision esp. considering the rumors that slutty wench and serial liar Jenny McCarthy is close to joining "The View":
View co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck is making the jump from network to cable, with the announcement today that she will be leaving ABC’s The View to co-host Fox & Friends.RELATED: Elisabeth Hasselbeck's Last Day on The View Is Wednesday
In Fox’s press release, Hasselbeck says, “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.”
The press release also includes Ailes welcoming Hasselbeck and praising her for her “warm and engaging personality,” and a statement from Barbara Walters saying, “We will miss her and wish her everything good.”
There were rumors back in March that Hasselbeck would be leaving The View this year. Walters denied that Hasselbeck was being pushed out for her conservative views, or at all, for that matter, only to be rebutted by a report a week later saying that Hasselbeck is “toast.” Another rumor sprung up that CNN head Jeff Zucker was interested in bringing Hasselbeck on CNN right after leaving ABC. Hasselbeck will officially start on the couch with Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade in mid-September.
Meanwhile, current Fox & Friends co-host Gretchen Carlson will be leaving the morning show to anchor her own daytime program, debuting sometime this fall.
