Hasselbeck stepped away from Fox & Friends to spend more time with family

Since first appearing on screen in 2001, she took part in the reality show Survivor: Australian Outback and then went on to join The View as co-host in 2003. 

Hasselbeck co-hosted part of the talk show for a decade, during which she welcomed her three children. In 2013, she moved on to host as part of Fox & Friends, but two years later, she revealed she was stepping down. 

While announcing the news to viewers on the show, the TV host explained that she had decided to leave her role in order to spend more time with her family and children. 

While reflecting on her decision to step down, she said she was at a point in life where she felt her children needed the “best” of her and not the “rest” of her. Hasselbeck continued: “I’m going to spend this time with the kids in the mornings. Start their day off right.”
