Just as Fox & Friends said goodbye to Gretchen Carlson on Friday, Fox News began rolling out the welcome wagon for new co-anchor Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

Hasselbeck, 36, who left The View  in July, will make her debut on Monday at 6/5c, working alongside current hosts Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade. “I feel like they’re my brothers,” Hasselbeck says in a new promo and joked that she had been challenged to a game of high-heel football.

“Joining the Fox News family is the equivalent of growing up as a Boston Red Sox fan or a Yankees fan, and then being asked to play for them,” she continues. “This is an honor and a privilege, and I’m just beyond thrilled to be on the team.”
