Goodbye Gretchen Carlson. Hello Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

Ms. Carlson announced on “Fox & Friends” Wednesday morning that she’s leaving the infamous curvy couch in September to head up her own talk show. And filling her slot — the lone conservative voice from “The View,” Ms. Hasselbeck.

“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,” Ms. Hasselbeck said in a statement reported by Mediaite.

ABC, Ms. Hasselbeck’s current network home, said in a statement: “For a decade, Elisabeth Hasselbeck has brought her passion and strong beliefs to ‘The View.’ We watched her journey from newlywed to motherhood, an Emmy Award-winning, talk-show host, author, entrepreneur and activist. She stood behind her political views even if they were not the most popular opinions at the table.”
