The View is known for being one of the morning TV chat shows that is always worth talking about. The ABC network’s show began in 1997 and has since been sending Americans, mostly women, to talk about current affairs and the thoughts of the times.
But the show’s producers, ABC network executives and show creator Barbara Walters know they can’t let their show be run by just anyone and stir up conversation every morning, so one of the best things about the show is its interesting and culturally relevant panel of hosts. While the line-up of presenters has changed several times over the years, the current line-up is one of the best yet.
With diverse backgrounds and personalities, the current co-hosts of The View are Joy Behar, Sara Haines, Sunny Hostin, Meghan McCain and EGOT-er Whoopi Goldberg. But since Meghan McCain recently announced her exit from the show, the next topic of conversation is who might replace her.
Will Debbie Matenopoulos Replace McCain on The View?
ABC’s The View is one of the longest-running daytime talk shows currently on the air. Created by award-winning journalist Barbara Walters in the 1990s, “The View” has been praised by the Los Angeles Times for being “one of the few places left on TV where liberal, conservative and moderate voices pose questions that real folks might ask” and for allowing “raw moments that are as authentic as they are viral.”
But one of the show’s co-hosts, Meghan McCain, recently announced her exit from the program, so who might take her place?
“The View” could be the starting point for McCain’s replacement with Debbie Matenopoulos. “Next year is our 25th season and we’re considering Debbie Matenopoulos making a triumphant return to ‘The View’,” a source told the Daily Mail.
Matenopoulos was one of the show’s original co-hosts alongside Walters, Meredith Veira, Star Jones and Joy Behar, so she would be a fitting addition next season. But there is another reason why Matenopoulos is the best choice. Another presenter could vacate her chair at the head of The View.
Although the ink is barely dry, viewers of the show may see a familiar face on screen next season.
