Gretchen Carlson will be replaced by Elizabeth Hasselbeck on Fox & Friends.

Carlson, 47, will be hosting her own daytime talk show that will debut in September, the same time Hasselbeck is said to step in as co-host of the fox show. Carlson is thrilled to be starting her own show and considers the move a huge stepping stone. 

"I am excited to further advance my career and am thrilled to have the opportunity to host my own show in daytime and look forward to showcasing my skills as an interviewer and journalist in a more in depth manner," Carlson said.

In a statement, obtained by Mediaite, Hasselbeck, said: "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."

On Monday, Hasselbeck also congratulated Carlson on her new show. 

"Big congratulations to Gretchen Carlson on her new show! She is a #TrustedVoice in News and I look forward being at FNC with her!," she tweeted.

ABC, who recently denied claims that they were attempting to fire Hasslebeck from the show because of her strong conservative views, wished her the best of luck. 

"For a decade, Elisabeth Hasselbeck has brought her passion and strong beliefs to 'The View.' We watched her journey from newlywed to motherhood, an Emmy Award-winning talk show host, author, entrepreneur and activist. She stood behind her political views even if they were not the most popular opinions at the table never shying away from voicing a difficult question her the best of luck," the statement read.

Barbara Walters also spoke about Hasselbeck's departure. 

"When Elisabeth survived 'Survivor' we wanted to make sure she would stay afloat. We have had ten wonderful years with Elisabeth and she will now be swimming in new waters. We will miss her and wish her everything good," Walters said. 

Meanwhile, Joy Behar will be leaving at the end of the show's season, while rumors swirled that Jenny McCarthy will be joining the show this fall.
