Abby Huntsman Expected to Join ‘The View’


Weekend "Fox and Friends" co-host Abby Huntsman will leave the network after she hosts the show this weekend and is expected to land a role on ABC's "The View", according to an individual familiar with Huntsman's plans.

The long-running daytime talk show features discussions on current events, entertainment, politics, and more.

Other "View" co-hosts include Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin and McCain.

About two weeks after Sara Haines became the latest to pass through The Revolving Door of The View to host the third hour of Good Morning America with Michael Strahan, it appears Abby Huntsman has won the sweepstake to replace her.

McCain replaced former Fox News contributor, Jedediah Bila, who described herself as "libertarian", a year ago.

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).

ABC declined to make executives available for comment. Her father also served as U.S. Ambassador to China under President Obama.

The show has been on the air for 21 seasons.
