The 40-year-old television host and journalist, Sara Haines, joined The View permanently in 2016, after numerous appearances as a guest co-host.


As reported by Page Six, Haines will leave the controversial talk show to join Michael Strahan on Good Morning America. Read more on our Twitter, @amomama_usa.

She had previously worked as a weekend news anchor for Good Morning America for three years. ABC News announced a new third hour of GMA which will expand its daytime schedule.

The addition came after their daytime food show, The Chew, received the boot. ABC hasn't responded to Page Six's inquiry about the other yet-be-announced hosts.


According to Variety, Haines' new segment with Strahan will not be presented live. Instead, the live audience from the morning segment will be used in conjunction with the pre-taped show.

Haines began her career almost 18 years ago with the Page Program, a 12-month paid fellowship at the National Broadcasting Company's studio.

In 2002, she was promoted to production coordinator for NBC's Today and remained with the network until 2009.


Good Morning America has been engaged in an ongoing viewer-war with their rival Today, hosted by Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie.

GMA remains the fan-favorite amongst viewers, but Kotb's morning segment reaches approximately 151,000 more viewers between the ages of 25 and 54.


Overall, Good Morning America is still ahead with 60,000 plus viewers.

Haines' co-host on The View, Paula Faris, also announced late last week that she whould be leaving to talk show for a new ABC news role on Good Morning America, E-News Online reported.

She also joined The View two years ago and had been working as a correspondent for ABC for the past five years.

The remaining panel on The View consists of Whoopi Goldberg, Sunny Hostin, Joy Behar, as well as Meghan McCain who joined the talk show back in October last year.
