The switch takes place in September. 

Carlson said made the announcement during the Tuesday morning show. She opened the program thanking the viewers and Fox News President Roger Ailes for supporting her as a host of "Fox and Friends" over the years. 

"I'm going to move forward in my career," Carlson said. "Moving on to the afternoons here at Fox and hosting my own show coming up in September." 

The long-time co-host of the morning show will be getting her own show on the network that will air in the afternoons starting this fall. She will be leaving the couch, where she's been hosting with Steve Doocy and Brain Kilmeade for the last seven years. 

"Congratulations, Gretch. We know you worked really hard and it shows each and every morning," Doocy said.

Caslon is a former 1989 Miss America, representing her native home state of Minnesota. Before Fox, Carlson was a CBS News correspondent and later become co-host of the "Early Show." In 2005, Carlson moved to Fox news, where a year later she joined the "Fox and Friends" crew. 

Hasselbeck announced to audience members of "The View" Wednesday that she would no longer be a co-host on the popular ABC morning talk show. She would instead join the cast of "Fox and Friends." 

"I have been a long-time fan of fox and friends and I am excited to be joining their team in September as it is an honor to call the Fox News Channel my new television home." she said in a statement to ABC News. 

"We look forward to welcoming her as well," said Carlson said during the show.
