Elisabeth Hasselbeck leaving 'The View'

Elisabeth Hasselbeck is officially vacating her seat on "The View." After joining the table in 2003, representatives tell CNN that Wednesday, July 10, will mark Hasselbeck's final day on the successful morning talk show, currently in its 16th season.

"For a decade, Elisabeth Hasselbeck has brought her passion and strong beliefs to "The View," ABC said in a statement. "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, never shying away from voicing a difficult question. We thank Elisabeth and wish her luck as she begins this new chapter of her career."

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hasselbeck's new chapter involves heading to Fox News in the fall to fill the spot on morning show “Fox & Friends” recently left open by co-host Gretchen Carlson.
