A Fox News personality will be making the jump to ABC, where a spot is opening up on the morning talk staple “The View.” Mediaite cites sources saying Abby Huntsman is “officially” making the move.
We reported last month that Huntsman was in talks with ABC News about the spot opening up with the departure of Sara Haines from “The View.” Haines is joining the third hour of ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
Huntsman is currently a co-host of “Fox & Friends Weekend.”
“When reached for comment, Fox News confirmed this will be Huntsman’s last weekend hosting the Saturday and Sunday editions of the network’s flagship morning program,” Mediaite reports.
Ana Navarro, a conservative commentator for CNN who works as a guest host on “The View,” had also been thought to be in the running for the open seat on the show.
