On Monday morning, the "Fox & Friends" show on the Fox News Network will undergo a transformation. Elisabeth Hasselbeck, former "Survivor" contestant and long-time host on ABC’s "The View," is joining the cast.
She will join co-hosts Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade on a redesigned set.
"In her new role on the network’s signature morning program, Hasselbeck, will interview key newsmakers, celebrities and politicians. Additionally, along with her co-hosts, she will provide viewers with a combination of lively topical discussions and casual and spontaneous dialogue while highlighting the latest headlines of the day," Fox News Channel said in a press release.
For 15 years, "Fox & Friends" has been the main morning program for the network, that runs 7 to 10 a.m. locally. The show is built in the same vein as most network morning news shows that also features interviews with celebrities, athletes and political heavyweights.
Additionally, each hour of the show offers reports on general news, sports, weather, politics, business and entertainment and, from time to time, includes regular stunts and musical performances on set and outside the studio.
"Joining the Fox News family is the equivalent of growing up as a Boston Red Sox fan or a Yankees fan and getting asked to play for the team … I’m just beyond thrilled to be on," Hasselbeck said in a Fox News Insider report.
This week, Hasselbeck, Doocy and Kilmeade will share the time they spent with Korie, Willie, and Kay "Miss Kay" Robertson of "Duck Dynasty." The group took a trip to Louisiana for a tour of the Duck Commander headquarters, learned to make duck calls, ate dinner with the cast and took in a cooking lesson.
