Kayleigh McEnany joins Fox News as co-host of 'Outnumbered'

Former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany is joining Fox News as a co-host of "Outnumbered,” the network announced Tuesday.

McEnany, who served during the Trump administration, is slated to start on April 6. She will co-host the show with founding anchor Harris Faulkner and Emily Compagno.

“Kayleigh’s unique background in politics and law coupled with her experiences confronting women's health challenges and life as a new mom will add robust insight to Outnumbered,” said Suzanne Scott, CEO of FOX News Media, in a statement Tuesday.


Fox News first announced on March 2 that McEnany was joining the network as a contributor on Faulkner’s show “The Faulkner Focus.”
