Sara Haines has been confirmed to return to ABC’s The View as a permanent co-host as the show returns next week for its 24th season, when a focus of the show will be on the final months of the 2020 presidential campaign. Co-host Meghan McCain plans to go on maternity leave and will be on The View at the start of the season.
Sara Haines will be returning to The View in September as a co-host for Season 24 of the ABC daytime talk show. Haines, 42, is no stranger to the Hot Topics table. She served as a View co-host for two seasons — from the fall of 2016 through the summer of 2018 — where she offered her takes on the headlines of the day, pop culture and celebrities. Prior to The View, Haines was a lifestyle anchor for GMA Weekend.
ABC is in talks with the Good Morning America Weekend anchor and ABC News correspondent to replace Michelle Collins.
