The popular ABC morning talk show, ‘The View” has long been a supporter of differencing stand-points.
Following the exit of “The View’s” longtime conservative co-host Meghan McCain, the ABC show will continue to highlight the differing viewpoints. Even as the show invites a variety of guest hosts to fill in for McCain in the show’s upcoming season.
Meghan McCain announced she was leaving her seat on “The View” this summer. And, with the announcement, the popular talk show was yet again faced with an open seat. One that producers, and audiences, alike knew would need to soon be filled.
However, not long after Meghan McCain’s midsummer announcement, producers of “The View” announced that they were in no hurry to find a permanent host to fill in for the exiting host.
Instead, “The View” producers have opted to invite a variety of special guests to fill in for McCain; as the show prepares to begin its twenty-fifth season on the air.
Of course, the show’s producers have made sure to invite guest hosts who will continue to represent the female conservative voice. The same voice McCain has been known for during her run on the show.
