Spring has already sprung here at FFL! Our newest arrivals include popping pinks, brilliant blues, and daring designs. With such eye catching content spilling from our site, we just knew we needed to feature an equally amazing woman for our WCW series. Fortunately for us, the conservative party has an outstanding array of intelligent, inspiring, and interesting women. This week, we chose Elisabeth Hasselbeck.
Now, we know what you’re thinking. “Who in the world is Elisabeth Hasselbeck, and why should I care?”
Elisabeth Hasselbeck is a television personality and talk show host, best known for her work on The View and Fox & Friends. In November 2003, Elisabeth replaced Lisa Ling as the fourth co-host on The View. After nearly ten years, Hasselbeck left the series in July of 2013, and replaced Gretchen Carlson as the female co-host of Fox & Friends in September of that year. Along with her work in television, our girl E was chosen to speak at the 2004 GOP convention, and later joined the campaign trail in 2008 to promote Republican nominee Sen. John McCain.
Okay. Phew. We answered the first part. Now for the second. Why should you care? You should care because Elisabeth has been nothing but influential in the world of politics. In 2009, Time magazine chose Hasselbeck and her fellow View co-hosts as among the 100 Most Influential people in the world. When her time there came to a close, E began working for Fox & Friends in September of 2013. By that November, the show’s ratings had grown by 9 percent, along with a 10% increase in viewership among people ages 25–54.
At FFL, we believe that any woman who is capable of speaking out and having her voice heard is worthy of our applause and congratulations. Elisabeth has perfected the balancing act between being a career oriented powerhouse and a wife/mother, an accomplishment that only adds to our admiration.
