MSNBC has hired Abby Huntsman, a host-producer on HuffPost Live and daughter of former GOP candidate Jon Huntsman, as a co-host of the political panel talk show The Cycle.

"I am excited to bring a dose of moderate, rational conservatism to The Cycle," Huntsman said Wednesday on HuffPost Live . "I think that's needed today in the political discourse."

Huntsman had been a part of The Huffington Post's video network since its launch in August 2012. In June, The Cycle co-host S.E. Cupp left MSNBC to join CNN's forthcoming debate show, Crossfire, which is set to relaunch in the fall. 

Huntsman will start at MSNBC on July 29, the network said. Hosts of The Cycle include Toure, Krystal Ball and Air Melber
