After four years, Meghan McCain is leaving The View.
The 36-year-old announced the news this morning on the talk show, saying, “"I am here to tell all of you, my wonderful cohorts and viewers at home: This is going to be my last season here at The View."
She also added, "On a professional note, this show is one of the hands-down greatest, most exhilarating, most wonderful privileges of my entire life.”
She continued, "This was not an easy decision. It took a lot of thought and counsel and prayer, and talking to my family and my close friends, and, you know, look — COVID has changed the world for all of us and it changed the way, at least for me, the way I am looking at life, the way I'm living my life, the way I want my life to look like."
McCain explained she was leaving because she wanted to stay in Washington, D.C., where she lives now with her husband Ben Domenech and daughter Liberty. The View hosts are currently taping remotely but the show is filmed in New York City.
