After two years, Elisabeth Hasselbeck is leaving the weekday morning news program Fox & Friends at the end of this year to spend more time with her family.

"Oftentimes, the most difficult decisions are between two great things," Hasselbeck said in a statement. "With a heart full of gratitude and the peace that God has given me, I am confident that this personal decision is the right one for our family, and we will be joining all of you watching Fox & Friends each morning as we get ready for school together."

Hasselbeck joined the show in September 2013, replacing original co-host Gretchen Carlson. Before that, she had been a panelist on The View for ten years, and was a contestant on the second season of Survivor in 2001.
