Meghan McCain joins ABC's 'The View' as a co-host

Speaking to co-host Joy Behar, McCain said, "I don't think we're going to agree on anything, Joy, but I'm really excited". "It's such an iconic show, it's so iconic to be in this chair that Elisabeth [Hasselbeck] made so great", she said at the top of the show. She's also had a few stints as a television host and resigned her position as a Fox News contributor to take on the new job at ABC.

"I'm honored and proud to be part of such an iconic show with a diverse, smart, strong and interesting group of women", said McCain. "I've been a fan of the show for many years, so taking my seat at that table is definitely a career highlight".

McCain has appeared before on the show, including an appearance when she was only 23 - she's now 33. Also ruining the OMG quality of the moment were those reports last week that ID'ed her as a new addition to the lineup. As the daughter of Senator John McCain, she was propelled into the national spotlight at an early age and has become a powerful role model for women.

The Arizona native matriculated at Columbia University with a degree in art history and subsequently joined her father's 2008 presidential campaign (she left later on). Her most recent book, America, You Sexy Bitch: A Love Letter to Freedom, is a journal of her 2011 cross-country road trip with comic Michael Ian Black. Hilary Estey McLoughlin serves as senior executive producer with Candi Carter and Brian Teta as executive producers.
