Hasselbeck will replace Gretchen Carlson as co-host of "Fox & Friends," alongside Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade in mid-September.

"I have been a long-time fan of Fox & Friends and am excited to be joining their team in September," Hasselbeck said in a statement.

"The View" will now be seeking two new co-hosts as Joy Behar will also not be returning this fall. Jenny McCarthy and Brooke Shields are rumored to be front-runners to take their seats.
