Fox News’ Abby Huntsman is officially leaving the network and joining ABC’s “The View.”

Huntsman will be replacing Sara Haines, who announced she is leaving to co-host the newly added third hour of “Good Morning America” with former NFL player Michael Strahan, according to Mediaite.

The former co-host of “Fox & Friends Weekend” will join fellow conservative Meghan McCain on the show. McCain was also previously at Fox News, but she left last year.

Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, McCain and Huntsman will be the lineup after the moves go into place. (RELATED: Report: Abby Huntsman Negotiating Move From Fox News To ‘The View’)

CNN commentator Ana Navarro was also in consideration to join the show as a co-host, according to PEOPLE. She has been a frequent guest on the show for years.
