The View had two vacant panelist chairs; Haines' announcement followed by four days the news that three-year co-host Paula Faris is leaving the show, and her weekend GMA duties, for a new assignment that includes contributing to Good Morning America and a podcast on faith.

Her addition to "The View" will likely provide more balance to the predominantly liberal panel that fellow conservative Meghan McCain was often forced to battle on her own. Huntsman, who is the daughter of Jon Huntsman, the U.S. Ambassador to Russian Federation, would bolster the ranks of young Republicans around "The View's" table, joining Meghan McCain.

According to Mediaite, Huntsman will be hosting "Fox & Friends Weekend" for the last time this weekend.

Now, sources close to "The View" tell Page Six that while "a deal isn't done", the show "is very interested in a role for her". Expect ABC News to announce shortly before the show's new season starts, right after Labor Day holiday.
