Abby Hunstman has revealed she will be stepping down as co-host of ABC’s The View in order to help work with her father, Jon Hunstman, as he runs for governor of Utah.
Huntsman, who joined The View over a year and a half ago, made the announcement during Monday’s airing of the talk show, revealing, “I couldn’t be more excited to help someone I love.”

“This is always such a hard thing to do,” Huntsman said at the beginning of Monday’s episode. “And especially this table because this is a really special table. The most iconic show I think on television and the smartest women that I’ve ever worked with. But today I’m saying goodbye.”
Huntsman’s last day on The View will be Friday.
