At Fox News Channel, Huntsman has served as co-host of Fox & Friends Weekend, a substitute co-host on programs such as America's Newsroom and Fox & Friends, and before that worked as a correspondent.
Before the Huntsman announcement, former "View" cohost and "Fuller House" star Candace Cameron Bure told Fox News that she hoped the series would add another conservative voice to join McCain at the table.
Eventually, after a few brief stints bouncing around networks and various fill-in roles on shows, Huntsman landed at MSNBC for some steady work before bouncing to Fox News Network as a regular corespondent in 2015.
Huntsman's father, Jon Huntsman Jr., serves as United States ambassador to Russian Federation under President Donald Trump.

She's married and has one daughter.
