‘The View’ plans series of conservative women as temporary McCain replacements
Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, former Rep. Mia Love (R-Utah) and Gretchen Carlson are among the women taking a turn in the co-host’s chair on “The View,” following Meghan McCain’s exit from the show.
The team behind the ABC daytime talk show said Monday in a news release that it’s “taking a little time to fill” the vacant co-host role.
Author McCain, the daughter of the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), left her high-profile gig as one of “The View’s” few conservative voices in July, after four seasons.
Other guest co-hosts who will appear in the coming months after the show’s Sept. 7 premiere include: CNN’s S.E. Cupp, 2016 Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina, Mary Katharine Ham, “Real Housewives of New York City” alum Eboni K. Williams and Cameran Eubanks.
The chatfest is also marking its 25th anniversary season this fall. While the COVID-19 pandemic had much of the show filmed remotely, the forthcoming season will have its co-hosts return to the New York studio in front of a live audience.
It’ll be the first time that moderator Whoopi Goldberg, along with co-hosts Sara Haines, Sunny Hostin and Joy Behar, will join together in-studio since March of last year.
