Meghan McCain, the daughter of 2008 Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain of Arizona, has become a permanent co-host of the Fox News daytime show “Outnumbered.”

McCain, 32, has appeared frequently on the program as a Fox News contributor since 2015. On Monday, the channel announced she will appear daily with co-hosts Harris Faulkner and Sandra Smith.

“Outnumbered” is a daytime discussion program featuring four women panelists joined by a male guest. The program has been the most-watched cable news program in its slot at noon Eastern Time since its launch in April 2014.


Before joining Fox News Channel last year, McCain served as the host of Pivot Network’s “TakePart Live” and has contributed to such publications as the Daily Beast, Newsweek and Time.

Although McCain describes herself as a Republican, she deviates from the party line on a number of issues including same-sex marriage and climate change. In 2011, she co-wrote a book called “America, You Sexy Bitch.”
