Meghan McCain is leaving “The View.”
The conservative co-host is ending her four-season run on the ABC talk show at the end of July, she announced on Thursday morning’s show.
“So I am just going to rip the Band-Aid off. I am here to tell all of you, my wonderful co-hosts and the viewers at home, that this is going to be my last season here at ‘The View,’” McCain said at the top of the episode.
The 36-year-old said that she plans to make Washington, DC, her family’s home base after she, her husband Ben Domenech, and their baby girl Liberty had been living there during much of the pandemic. “The View” is based in New York.
“We have this incredible life here … and I think, as any new mom knows, when I think about where I want Liberty to have her first steps, her first words, I just have this really wonderful life here that ultimately I didn’t want to leave,” she said.
