The View Co-Host Makes Decision to Quit Show

The View

The View co-host Abby Huntsman is leaving the talk show to help run her father Jon Huntsman Jr.’s campaign for governor of Utah, she announced on Monday.

Abby Huntsman said on the ABC talk show that she will be the senior advisor to her father’s campaign.

The daughter of the former U.S. Ambassador to Russia and former governor of Utah said her final appearance co-hosting The View will be Friday, January 17. Her father’s gubernatorial campaign is already in full swing.

Huntsman explained that she came to the decision to leave The View during the show’s winter hiatus; her father had already asked her for help running his campaign when it launched.

Huntsman has been a co-host of The View since the start of its 22nd season in September 2018, having got her start at ABC News while interning at Good Morning America and World News Tonight in college. She later served as a news desk assistant for ABC News in Washington D.C. and an assistant booker for Good Morning America in New York City, according to ABC News.
