“Elisabeth’s warm and engaging personality made her a star on The View,” Fox News Chairman & CEO Roger Ailes told the newspaper. “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 will join Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmead on the Fox morning program, while Gretchen Carlson will shift move to daytime.

Said Barbara Walters in a statement:

“When Elisabeth survived Survivor we wanted to make sure she would stay afloat. We have had 10 wonderful years with her and she will now be swimming in new waters. We will miss her and wish her everything good.”

Joy Behar, meanwhile, will also exit The View this summer. Possible replacements include Brooke Shields, NeNe Leakes and Jenny McCarthy.
