Meghan McCain, the daughter of the late Senator John McCain and former host of ABC’s The View has landed a new job.
McCain will be working for the Daily Mail as a columnist. McCain exited The View over the summer and will be writing for Daily Mail on the regular.
“Everything in my life these days is about going back to basics,” McCain, 36, tweeted on Thursday. “I started as a columnist & am thrilled at the chance to return to it @DailyMail. I am so excited to work in a completely uncensored free space.”
In a separate statement released Thursday, she explained, “I’ve been an avid reader of the website for many years and have been impressed by its global influence and reach. It truly is a juggernaut.”
She added: “I’ve always respected the way DailyMail.com tackles issues across the entire political spectrum and I’m looking forward to sharing my own opinions without fear or favor on the important issues that matter to our readers across the globe.” (New York Post).
McCain’s first article will be published on September 20.
Since leaving The View, ABC has not rushed to replace her.
