ABC didn’t let Meghan McCain go from “The View” without a fight.
While the conservative co-host is expected to announce her resignation on Thursday morning’s show, a Disney source told Page Six that ABC desperately fought to keep her.
“ABC begged for her to stay [and] she said ‘No — I’m done! I’m not staying anymore,’” the source said.
“They even offered a contributor role on ABC News, which she tuned down,” the source added. “She’s just had enough. She doesn’t need it anymore — she really doesn’t need it.”
McCain still had two years left in her contract, according to the Daily Mail.
Earlier this year, it didn’t sound like McCain had plans to exit the talk show, despite her infamous on-camera tiffs with Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg, among others.
“Because whether we like it or not, I’m not going anywhere on the show, Joy’s not going anywhere on the show, we all have to live and co-exist together just like Americans right now,” she said on “Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen” in January. “… But we’re all going to try and co-exist and I really want to have us all move forward.”
McCain — who is the daughter of the late Sen. John McCain and Cindy Cain — joined the show four seasons ago.
She married Ben Domenech in 2017 and they welcomed their daughter, Liberty, in September 2020.
