Conservative broadcaster Meghan McCain on Thursday ended her tumultuous tenure on the popular daytime program "The View." McCain, the daughter of the late Sen. John McCain of Arizona, had been on the show since October 2017.

"I am just going to rip the Band-Aid off. I am here to tell all of you … that this is going to be my last season here at the ‘The View,'” McCain announced on Thursday’s episode.

“This was not an easy decision. COVID has changed the world for all of us. And it changed the way I’m living my life.”

McCain, who considered herself a Republican, will be remembered as the second-longest-running conservative co-host on the program. As well for her multiple viral and highly rated moments, she was not afraid to argue it out with her co-hosts. She also was a strong supporter of the LGBTQ community.

During the pandemic, she would film the show remotely from where she moved to in Washington, D.C -- a decision she made because he was pregnant.

She had told ABC executives that she does not want to move back to New York City.

“When I said goodbye to all of you in the studio, I found out I was pregnant,” McCain said. “I came to the D.C. area, and we have this incredible life here. And as any new mom knows, when I think about where I want Liberty to have her first steps, I have a really wonderful life here.”

The time McCain’s spent on “The View,” was very successful. Her presence resulted in the ratings soaring. It became the most-watched daytime show.

In a statement, ABC said that "it understands and respects McCain's desire to leave for her family."

“For the past four years, Meghan McCain has brought her fierce determination and vast political knowledge and experience to The View," the network said. "We wish the best for Meghan as she plans her next chapter, and thank her for the passion and unique voice that she shared with us and our viewers each day.”

She took aim at the media on Thursday, noting "deep misogyny" and "sexism."

"My final note to the world watching … The media needs to do a better job of covering the women on this show," she said. "We are covered with deep misogyny and sexism by the media. If five men were doing what we do every day, I really do believe that we'd probably have a Pulitzer Prize."
