It’s official! Thrilled to return to where it all began for me @ABC – running scripts, covering the overnight news desk, & logging tape – never dreamt back then I’d one day join @TheView table. Get excited for Season 22 with @whoopigoldberg @joyvbehar @sunny @meghanmccain! pic.twitter.com/SGBkSNCGyn

Huntsman and ABC announced on Tuesday that the former “Fox & Friends Weekend” host would be Sara Haines’ replacement on “The View.”
“I couldn’t be more be excited to return to my professional roots at ABC News,” Huntsman, who began her career at ABC, said in a statement. “I look forward to adding my own point of view to the most interesting and successful talk show on television today. Joining the women at ‘The View’ really is a dream come true!”
Hilary Estey McLoughlin, the show’s senior executive producer, said Huntsman “brings her unique life and professional experiences and has a smart, relatable and distinctive point of view on everything from pop culture to politics to parenthood.”
Abby, the daughter of Trump’s Ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman, will join another Republican politician’s daughter on the show, Meghan McCain.
