Elisabeth Hasselbeck announces she is leaving Fox & Friends.

FILE – In this Sept. 16, 2013 file photo, Elisabeth Hasselbeck appears in her debut as the new co-host of the “Fox & Friends” television program in New York. Though that stated reason has a long history of flimsiness, the Erik Wemple Blog has no reason to believe it’s not actually the case for Hasselbeck, a former mainstay on ABC’s “The View.” She said in a statement: “Oftentimes, the most difficult decisions are between two great things. Elisabeth Hasselbeck, the hit morning show’s star attraction, will quit by the end of the year to spend more time with her family. “With a heart full of gratitude and the peace that God has given me, I am confident that this personal decision is the right one for our family, and we will be joining all of you watching Fox & Friends each morning as we get ready for school together.” Hasselbeck, who first came to attention on the Survivor reality show, joined Fox in 2013 after close to a decade as the most conservative voice on ABC’s The View.

Throughout my 14 years working in television, I have never experienced a more positive and thoughtful atmosphere than FOX News Channel, thanks to the strong leadership of [Fox News Chairman & CEO] Roger Ailes, who has created the best working environment a woman and mother could ask for. On The View she regularly clashed with co-hosts including Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O’Donnell on subjects including women’s reproductive rights and the war in Iraq.

His understanding, compassion, and kindness was exemplified when I shared with him that I am entering into a season where I want to start my day with my children first, and he offered his blessing to do so. The host of the No 1-rated morning cable show has described herself as neither a conservative nor a liberal but has been a staunch Republican supporter. When Hasselbeck took over from Gretchen Carlson in July 2013, she honored and perpetuated the show’s traditions of close-mindedness and offensiveness. She also introduced former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin at several rallies. “Elisabeth and I discussed this at length over several weeks, and while I would love for her to continue here, I respect her incredibly difficult, yet deeply personal decision.
