‘The View’: Alyssa Farah Griffin Eyed as Conservative Co-Host
According to Variety, Griffin has been tapped to serve as The View‘s conservative co-host, taking the position left open by the previous co-host Meghan McCain. The 33-year-old would join the show as a regular co-host for the upcoming 26th season this fall.
A former Trump White House director of strategic communications, Griffin has already sat down at the Hot Topics table on and off this past season and will return for the July 27 show as teased by The View‘s social media page.
Prior to Griffin, McCain served as the show’s conservative co-host from 2017 to 2021, making plenty of headlines during her run. Before McCain, the spot belonged to Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who began her run on the daytime series in 2003.
