Who is Abby Huntsman?
Abby Huntsman is an American television personality and journalist who most recently served as a co-host of ABC’s The View from September 2018 to January 2020. She previously served as a general assignment reporter for Fox News Channel and co-host of Fox & Friends. Before joining Fox, she had been a host on MSNBC.
Abby worked a behind-the-scenes position at Good Morning America at age 16. By her own admission, she disliked it so much that she contemplated giving up on television “forever”. While she was attending the University of Pennsylvania, Abby interned for Diane Sawyer. Having observed Sawyer’s representation of herself and manner of presenting news, Abby became so impressed with her that she would later say, “I always think of her as someone that I hope I can try to be like.”
During and after her father’s presidential campaign in 2012, Huntsman appeared as a political commentator for ABC News in Washington, D.C., and Good Morning America in New York City. In October 2012, she was also profiled in ABC News’s “Five Questions”, a part of This Week with George Stephanopoulos. In August 2012, Huntsman was interviewed by Brian Williams on Rock Center about Mitt Romney‘s run for president. She also talked about her own relationship with the Mormon faith. Previously, Huntsman held a position at the international public relations firm Burson-Marsteller. Huntsman was listed as number 26 on the Forbes 30 under 30 lists of up and coming members of the media in 2013.
In July 2013, Abby joined The Cycle, filling a vacancy created by the departure of S.E. Cupp. She was the second replacement host to join the show, after Ari Melber. Huntsman then sought to bring conservative views to the program. She also denied that her relation to the Huntsman family had anything to do with her acquiring the position since she, in her own words, “went through the same audition process as everybody else”, against a field she recalled featuring hundreds of candidates. The Cycle was canceled in July 2015.
