Elisabeth Hasselbeck Departing ‘Fox & Friends’ For More Family Time.

A teary-eyed Elisabeth Hasselbeck addressed viewers Tuesday morning to explain her decision to depart from “Fox & Friends” to spend more time with her three kids. “I am, as I said, taking a new position as CBO, Chief Breakfast Officer, at our house with the kids,” she said. “And that does mean that in about a month, I’ll be leaving my Fox News family.” “I’m going to spend this time with the kids in the morning, start their day off right,” she added. “I’m in a season where the kids need the best of me, not the rest of me.” The former “Survivor: The Australian Outback” contestant, who joined the morning show in 2013 after a 10-year stint on “The View,” didn’t shy away from bold statements — including one in September that the Black Lives Matter movement should be branded a hate group. “He’s the best man that I’ve worked for,” she said. “I pray that my kids, and my daughter as a working woman as it comes her time, would have the honor of working for someone like him who understands a working mom’s heart.” “I am beyond blessed; I don’t deserve you here right now,” she told Doocy and Kilmeade before referencing their respective wives. “But I need to be more like Kathy Doocy, and I need to be more like Dawn Kilmeade.” After Hasselbeck’s departure next month, the network will fill her seat with a rotating group of co-hosts until it finds a permanent replacement, Fox News said in a statement Monday. “Outside of today and my last day, I will declare the time in between a no-cry zone, but I will permit emotion to run where it is permitted to run on this day now,” the Fox News anchor said while fighting back tears. “This is a hard decision, many women in business and work make these decisions in cycle of their parenting and work lives. 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. 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 each morning as we get ready for school together.” Elisabeth has three children: Grace, 10, Taylor, 8, and Isaiah, 6.
