President George W. Bush’s former communications chief Nicolle Wallace is expected to join the all-female panel on ABC’s chat-fest “The View,” according to one report.
McCarthy, along with comedienne Sherri Shepherd, was booted from the upcoming fall season of the talk show. The program’s creator, veteran journalist Barbara Walters, retired last spring.
Wallace, 42, is an author and a regular on MSNBC. She’s one of several conservative voices to get a shot at the hosting gig throughout the last month, including MSNBC’s Abby Huntsman, CNN “Crossfire” co-host S.E. Cupp, and Washington investigative reporter Emily Miller, among others. Wallace appeared as a guest co-host on “The View” last week.
