Fox & Friends bid farewell to one of its hosts on Friday morning: Gretchen Carlson.
Carlson is set to depart the show for a new role hosting an unspecified daytime news program, beginning this fall. She will be replaced by former View co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck, starting next Monday, Sept. 16.
Joined by co-hosts Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade, meteorologist Maria Molina, and musical guest Gloria Estefan, Carlson enjoyed a send-off that included a tribute video, cake, and an emotional speech thanking the cast and crew for all of their work.
Carlson was a weekday co-host of F&F since 2006, when she moved from the weekend substitute anchor role to replace E.D. Hill.
