A month later, in October 2015, she joined Fox News Channel as an anchor/host of Fox & Friends Weekend. Additionally, she occasionally used to fill in on other Fox programs such as Fox & Friends and America’s Newsroom.
When she left the job in September 2018, she joined ABC News and served as the co-host of the popular program, The View. Her tenure in the show helped in increasing her popularity even more. Besides, she even received a Daytime Emmy Award nomination in 2019.
In January 2020, Huntsman announced that she will be leaving her position to help her father in the 2020 Utah gubernatorial election campaign as his senior advisor. Her final appearance in The View came on January 17.
Speaking of what she does now, her LinkedIn profile mentions that she has been working as a host for Dear Media’s I Wish Somebody Told Me podcast since November 2021.
