Joy Behar isn't the only one jumping ship on "The View" ... Elisabeth Hasselbeck is also bailing on ABC's daytime talk show.

Fox just released a statement, saying Hasselbeck will be replacing Gretchen Carlson on "Fox & Friends." A rep for ABC said Hasselbeck's last day on "The View" will be Wednesday.

Barbara Walters also released a statement, saying, "We have had 10 wonderful years with Elisabeth, and she will now be swimming in new waters. We will miss her and wish her everything good."

It's unclear who will replace Hasselbeck on the show ... but there are rumors Brooke Shields is being tapped for the job.

Elisabeth is expected to join "Fox & Friends" in September. As for Carlson ... you haven't seen the last of her on Fox News -- she's getting her own daytime show starting in the fall.

This is not surprising. The plan was for her to leave all along. It's just wrapped up in a bow because she now has somewhere to go.

I think Fox News will be too much for her in the long run. Elisabeth, while conservative, likes to play it a bit safe. Now she will be completely on the line.

Good. Now she'll be around people who read the same talking points memo every morning as she does, so no one will disagree with "her" viewpoints.

Jealousy is in the air, isn't it? For one, good for her. They never let her talk on "The View" because she didn't share the same as everyone else. I thought that's why they made the show. Women of different beliefs and ideas come together? So people bashing her are obviously too daft to catch the concept of the show. So she's not a blind sheep that follows the flock. It's good to think for yourself. and I personally think they were threatened by her. She's a sweet woman and people aren't giving her a chance because that's Liberals for you. So loving.... as they scream and hate on anything that isn't their shared viewpoint. If anyone was annoying on that show it was everybody BUT Hasslebeck.

It will be a much more relaxing work environment for her being with like minded people. I'm sure she got tired of fighting, especially being outnumbered all the time.

Thank God!! She is a perfect match for Fox. Will she be allowed to go on and on speaking about what she thinks? Will she be able to talk over everyone else? Again, thank you God!

Ahahaha she got hella downgraded. Fox and friends? LOL. Hey, at least she'll be the smartest person in that room instead of the dumbest.

Elisabeth is very shrill. I think they should end The View while they're ahead, instead of driving it into the ground. I don't really think Elisabeth has the qualifications to host a show on any news channel.
