MSNBC’s “The Cycle” is adding HuffPost Live host Abby Huntsman as co-host. Huntsman announced the move on HuffPost Live this afternoon (see video below). She is effectively replacing S.E. Cupp, who left MSNBC to co-host CNN’s revamp of “Crossfire” last month.
Huntsman is the daughter of Jon Huntsman, who ran for the GOP nomination for President in the 2012 campaign. She is the second HuffPost Live host to depart this year. In May, Alicia Menendez announced that she would be departing to host her own show on Fusion, the new cable news channel from Univision and ABC News.
