'The View' Welcomes New Co-host Meghan McCain

'The View' Welcomes New Co-host Meghan McCain”

McCain will serve as the show's primary conservative voice, replacing Jedediah Bila, who abruptly departed on September 18.

So there was applause but few gasps as Meghan McCain, the conservative commenter and author who just left a co-host gig on Fox News's "Outnumbered", cheerily took the stage - and her place at the table. "It's such an iconic show, it's so iconic to be in this chair that Elisabeth [Hasselbeck] made so great", she said at the top of the show. "I watched Elisabeth in college and to be the conservative on this show is something I take very seriously and I'm excited to bring a different perspective to the show".

ABC said that Meghan McCain has joined The View as a co-host and will be a contributor to ABC News.

After embracing her new colleagues, McCain began to explain the number of changes she underwent over the summer. McCain also spoke highly of Goldberg and her appreciation of all that she's done for young talent and women. Also ruining the OMG quality of the moment were those reports last week that ID'ed her as a new addition to the lineup. She is the daughter of Republican Senator John McCain of Arizona. In 2014, she hosted the late-night news program "TakePart Live" on Pivot TV and took part in a 2013 documentary series on the same network. McCain wrote on Twitter.

"I am committed until I die to helping solve this", McCain said. "She's in good hands here".
