‘We’re Both People of Faith’: Alyssa Farah-Griffin Reveals Elisabeth Hasselback’s Advice for Joining THE VIEW
By Movieguide® Contributor
When former White House staffer Alyssa Farah Griffin joins THE VIEW as a cohost, she will bring the experience of 30 guest appearances and a little wisdom from previous host, Elisabeth Hasselbeck.
“I had a fabulous conversation with Elisabeth,” Farah Griffin said. “I was a huge fan of hers; we’re both Christians, we’re both people of faith, and I watched her for so many years, so that was the dream person I wanted to talk to ahead of the announcement.”
The conservative, who cohosted for ten years and earned a Daytime Emmy Award, certainly had some advice to give to the host-to be.
“Own your chair. You are not there just representing yourself, but [also] conservatives or right-of-center people, many in the middle of the country, who often feel like their voices aren’t heard. So [stand] firm in your convictions, but be gracious in your delivery,” Farah Griffin recounts Hasslebeck telling her. “And that is what I’m trying to do.”
Farah Griffin was a press secretary for former Vice President Mike Pence, the youngest press secretary to the Pentagon, and director of strategic communications under former President Donald Trump. Even during her time in the White House she was a faithful watcher of the THE VIEW, and naturally very excited to be a part of the ABC daytime talk show’s upcoming 26th season.
Movieguide® previously reported on the announcement that the former press secretary was getting a spot on the show.
“I couldn’t be more honored and thrilled to join the ladies of THE VIEW,” Farah Griffin said. “The show paved the way for women speaking up and speaking out on TV.”
She shared her admiration of the current female hosts on the August 4th episode that the news of her placement on the show was made public.
“I can’t say how much I’ve learned from all of you, and I hope to learn from all of
you,” she said.
Political Strategist and Commentator Ana Navarro will be joining THE VIEW this upcoming season along with Farah Griffin.
