In case you were wondering, former co-host Abby Huntsman isn’t missing View.
“I don’t talk much about that time, and I won’t, but the decision I made was probably the best decision I could have made for my life, for my sanity, for my happiness, for my family.” she said People.
The decision was one “that I felt in my guts, in fact, for a while about to take, much longer than people probably realize.” “
Huntsman went out of sight in January 2020 amid rumors of bad blood with Meghan McCain and the other co-hosts.
“And when I made the decision, I remember walking through those doors after they said to me, ‘Nobody quits their dream job on TV’, and I said, ‘Well, this is not the dream job I was hoping for, in many ways it was, ”she said.
She still remembers the feeling of relief from her last day when she left.
“I could hear birdsong in town, in Central Park,” she said, “and I rolled my eyes and thought, ‘This is the best thing that I have. made for myself ”. Because I can see the world, I can hear the world, I am more present.
She said last year it’s been “a lot of healing and a lot of questioning and thinking and asking, ‘Did you make a mistake, did you handle this or that right? “”
Abby Huntsman worked on her father Jon Huntsman Jr.’s campaign for governor of Utah. His whole family caught the coronavirus, and then his father lost his main race.

New plans call for Huntsman to launch a podcast soon.
