Elisabeth Hasselbeck departed "The View" with virtually no warning. But her arrival at her new home on Fox News' "Fox & Friends" is getting plenty of buildup.
The network announced Thursday that Sept. 16 will be Hasselbeck's debut alongside Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade. The men have been with the program since it began in 1998. Former "Fox & Friends" co-host Gretchen Carlson is departing to host her own daytime show on Fox News.
The show will also debut its new set on that day.
Hasselbeck frequently drew criticism for her conservative views during her 10-year tenure on "The View," but she should find a more welcoming audience on Fox News.
