Gretchen Carlson Leaving ‘Fox And Friends,’ Will Be Replaced By Elisabeth Hasselbeck [Video]

There’s going to be a bit of a change on morning television. Gretchen Carlson will be leaving Fox & Friends this fall and Elisabeth Hasselbeck will be leaving The View.

Carlson will move on to her own show on Fox during the afternoon hours while Hasselbeck will take a seat next to Steve Dooocy and Brian Kilmeade on Fox & Friends.

The news broke last night but Carlson made it official this morning on the Fox show.

Carlson said: “I’m going to move forward in my career … moving on to the afternoons here at Fox and hosting my own show coming up in September.”

Doocy added: “Congratulations, Gretch … We know you work really hard and it shows each and every morning.”

Hasselbeck also said goodbye to her friends over at The View this morning. The ABC co-host will film her last episode of The View today before moving on to Fox And Friends this fall.

Hasselbeck said in a press release: “I have been a longtime fan of Fox & Friends and am excited to be joining their team in September. It is an honor to call the Fox News Channel my new television home.”

Here’s a video of Gretchen Carlson announcing her departure on Fox & Friends.
