Sara Haines to exit ‘The View,’ will host new ‘GMA’ hour with Michael Strahan

Sara Haines is leaving behind her co-hosting duties on “The View” — but she’s not leaving ABC behind.

Haines, who joined “The View” in 2016, will depart the show, but is taking up co-hosting duties with Michael Strahan on the upcoming third hour of “Good Morning America,” an individual with knowledge of the move told TheWrap.

Haines, who became an ABC News correspondent in 2013, had previously appeared on the weekend editions of “Good Morning America.”

ABC had no comment on the move for TheWrap.

News broke in May that a third hour would be added to “Good Morning America,” though the plan is to air the additional hour at 1 p.m./12c (and PT).

“Over the past six years ‘Good Morning America’ has solidified its place as America’s No. 1 morning show,” said Ben Sherwood, co-chairman, Disney Media Networks, and president, DisneyABC Television. “We believe there is great opportunity for viewers and advertisers in expanding to a third hour.”

Former NFL player Strahan became a regular contributor to “GMA” in 2014. In 2016, it was announced that Stahan would come aboard the morning show on a full-time basis.

News of Haines’ “View” departure comes just days after it was reported that Paula Faris would be leaving the show, after three years on the talk offering.
