Meghan McCain joins The View as new co-host

Adjust Comment Print

The 32-year-old McCain's first appearance is reportedly slated for early October when the self-proclaimed Blonde Republican and daughter of 2008 Presidential nominee Senator John McCain will join the ABC morning program's table to debate the issues with her cohorts and their guests.

"The View" finally has its new conservative co-host in Meghan McCain.

McCain's co-host spot was rumored earlier in September, when resident conservative Jedediah Bila abruptly announced her exit from the ABC chatfest. She will represent a conservative voice on the panel that's now composed of Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Paula Faris, Sara Haines and Sunny Hostin.

Meghan McCain attends the 25th annual GLAAD Media Awards in Beverly Hills on April 12, 2014. Despite her political affiliation, McCain has been notably critical of the current administration and President Donald Trump. So in other words, McCain and The View are a match made in heaven!

Goldberg, on the other hand, revealed in one of her interviews that she would be staying on the show as long she is needed to stay.

Bila announced her resignation from the show a few days after Hillary Clinton came on to promote her new book, "What Happened". For several years, the show has played along with its regular co-hosts.

The network added, "We want to thank Jed very much for all of her contributions and wish her great success with the next step in her career".
