Elisabeth Hasselbeck, former "The View" host who announced her departure last month, will make her debut on "Fox & Friends" Sept. 16, the network announced Thursday.

Hasselbeck, who spent 10 years as the lone conservative voice on Barbara Walters' daytime talk show panel, will replace Fox's Gretchen Carlson, who is reportedly getting her own one-hour show on the network in the fall.

"Elisabeth’s warm and engaging personality made her a star on 'The View,'" Fox News chairman and CEO Roger Ailes said in a statement. "She has proven to be an excellent conversationalist and I am certain she will make a great addition to our already successful morning franchise."

Hasselbeck joins current "Fox & Friends" co-hosts Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade, who have been working together on the morning show since 1998. Sept. 16 will also mark the big reveal of a new redesigned set.

"I have been a long-time fan of 'Fox & Friends' and am excited to be joining their team in September as it is an honor to call the Fox News Channel my new television home," Hasselbeck said in a release.

The wife of former NFL quarterback Tim Hasselbeck, she was a finalist on the 2001 reality show "Survivor." Her popularity on "Survivor" led her to the "The View" in 2003, where her conservative views often clashed with some of her more liberal hosts.

"We have had 10 wonderful years with Elisabeth and she will now be swimming in new waters," said Walters, the show's creator and co-host. "We will miss her and wish her everything good."
