Abby Huntsman leaves Fox and Friends for The View
Abby Huntsman has bid farewell to Fox and Friends. She hosted her last show on Sunday after 3 years with the network.
Abby was joined by her husband, Jeffrey Bruce Livingston, and daughter, Isabel Grace when she tearfully thanked her co-hosts, Pete Hegseth and Ed Henry. She stated,
The last three years have been the most transformative I think of my entire life. I have given my heart and soul to this place, and to you guys. And in return, you’ve given it back to me and so have our viewers
She also said that she is moving on to the next chapter in her life, where she will be dedicating most of her time to her family. However, it’s definitely not the end of her career. There have been reports that she is joining the panel of The View as their new conservative pundit. She is expected to replace Sara Haines, who will be moving to the new third hour of ‘Good Morning America’ in September.
Plans after Leaving Fox News
Huntsman joined Fox News as a reporter in 2015 and became the weekend co-host of Fox & Friends the following year. Fox spokesperson stated,
We thank Abby for her contributions to Fox News and wish her the very best.
While most of the fans have supported her decision to join ABC, some of them have expressed their dissatisfaction claiming that she has trashed Fox News. Perhaps, there are some reasons behind her exit that both she and the network haven’t chosen to reveal.
Married to her college sweetheart since 2010, Huntsman welcomed a baby girl in November 2017.
Now, it seems like she is more focused on her motherhood responsibilities. She released a children’s book, Who Will I Be?, in June this year. She has written about the value of service and the extraordinary power of giving back to the community in her book. She is one of seven children to current Ambassador of the US to Russia, Jon Huntsman, and activist, Mary Kaye Huntsman.
We wish all the best for your future pursuits, Abby!
