After weeks of rumors and speculation on who will take Sara Haines' vacated spot on The View, it appears that Abby Huntsman has garnered the coveted slot. Deadline is reporting the Fox & Friends Weekend co-host will join friend and fellow conservative Meghan McCain, daughter of Arizona U.S. Senator, John McCain.
Huntsman has her political ties as well. She's the daughter of former Governor of Utah and current U.S. Ambassador to Russia, Jon Huntsman. According to the trade site, this will be Huntsman's final weekend on Fox & Friends.
While the deal for the pundit isn't finalized, Huntsman is expected to be the new co-host of the ABC talk show. An announcement is to take place before the new season begins right after the upcoming Labor Day holiday.
