The move comes a month after Jedediah Bila left the show.

McCain had been with Fox News, most recently on the show Outnumbered. She will provide a conservative voice for the show. She is the daughter of Republican Senator John McCain of Arizona.

“Meghan is smart and well-informed, with passionate opinions that will create a new and exciting dynamic at the table” said senior executive producer Hilary Estey McLoughlin. “She has a unique perspective and life experience that will bring a fresh, multigenerational voice to the show. We know she’ll be a great addition to The View.”

“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.”

As a contributor to ABC News, McCain is expected to make appearances on all newscasts including Good Morning America and This Week.
