Elisabeth Hasselbeck talks with Barbara Walters during a broadcast of 'The View' on Wednesday, July 10, 2013, in New York. Hasselbeck left 'The View' less than 24 hours after it was announced that she would join 'Fox & Friends' in September.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck will make her on-air premiere on Fox News Channel's "Fox & Friends" on Sept. 16.

Fox News' executive vice president of programming Bill Shine made the announcement on Thursday. In addition to the premiere date, Fox announced that Hasselbeck will make her debut along with co-hosts Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade on a redesigned set that will be unveiled that morning.

Hasselbeck, a former longtime co-host of ABC's talk show "The View," left her previous gig in July. During her final day on "The View," Hasselbeck called her decade-long tenure "nothing short of extraordinary."

This summer also saw the departure of "View" co-host Joy Behar. While Hasselbeck has been replaced by Jenny McCarthy, a replacement for Behar has not yet been chosen. When the show returns in the fall, it will employ guest hosts.

Dear Reader,

About a year ago, I happened upon this statement about the Monitor in the Harvard Business Review – under the charming heading of “do things that don’t interest you”:

“Many things that end up” being meaningful, writes social scientist Joseph Grenny, “have come from conference workshops, articles, or online videos that began as a chore and ended with an insight. My work in Kenya, for example, was heavily influenced by a Christian Science Monitor article I had forced myself to read 10 years earlier. Sometimes, we call things ‘boring’ simply because they lie outside the box we are currently in.”

If you were to come up with a punchline to a joke about the Monitor, that would probably be it. We’re seen as being global, fair, insightful, and perhaps a bit too earnest. We’re the bran muffin of journalism.

But you know what? We change lives. And I’m going to argue that we change lives precisely because we force open that too-small box that most human beings think they live in.

The Monitor is a peculiar little publication that’s hard for the world to figure out. We’re run by a church, but we’re not only for church members and we’re not about converting people. We’re known as being fair even as the world becomes as polarized as at any time since the newspaper’s founding in 1908.

We have a mission beyond circulation, we want to bridge divides. We’re about kicking down the door of thought everywhere and saying, “You are bigger and more capable than you realize. And we can prove it.”

If you’re looking for bran muffin journalism, you can subscribe to the Monitor for $15. You’ll get the Monitor Weekly magazine, the Monitor Daily email, and unlimited access to CSMonitor.com.
