After nearly 10 years as a co-host of “The View,” Elisabeth Hasselbeck said goodbye to the ABC talk show this morning. She will be joining “Fox & Friends” in the fall.

“The past 10 years have been nothing short of extraordinary,” Hasselbeck, 36, said at the start of the show. “I wish the next person or co-host that sits here an extraordinary set of years to come of their own. Let’s get to work.”

Hasselbeck joined the show in 2003, just after competing on “Survivor.” Since then, she has welcomed three children and seen many changes to the show. But through it all, she said, she has counted on the support of an efficient production team and, of course, her co-hosts.

“It is undeniable that you are one of the most talented artists on the planet,” she told Whoopi Goldberg. “[But] you are even more loving than you are talented. You are walking unconditional love … and I am blessed to call myself a friend of yours.”
