Sep 28, 2017

Meghan McCain is joining The View as a co-host in October, according to a new report.

The news comes after McCain left Fox News, where she co-hosted the program Outnumbered. After announcing her departure, McCain tweeted, "I’m so thankful to @FoxNews for the chance to be on @OutnumberedFNC but I’m leaving to focus on other things, I have no doubt the show will continue to do well and wish all my friends and colleagues at the network nothing but success."

The View has been making a number of casting changes, including stints by Nicolle Wallace, Rosie Perez, Raven Symone, Michelle Collins, Candace Cameron Bure and Jedidiah Bila.
