New York (CNN Business)Meghan McCain, the conservative personality who repeatedly ignited controversy and clashed with her colleagues on and off set, announced Thursday that she will leave her role as a co-host on ABC's "The View."

"I'm just going to rip the bandaid off," McCain said at the top of the show. "I am here to tell all of you, my wonderful cohorts and viewers at home: This is going to be my last season here at 'The View.'" McCain said it was "not an easy decision" and that she will be with "The View" until its current season ends at the end of the month. "On a professional note, this show is one of the hands-down greatest most exhilarating most wonderful privileges of my entire life," McCain said. After announcing her decision, McCain's co-hosts praised her. Whoopi Goldberg said it had been "wonderful" to have her as a colleague on the show. Joy Behar, who McCain repeatedly battled with on the program, said she was a "formidable opponent" and "no snowflake." Read More McCain indicated that her decision was motivated by her desire to remain in Washington, DC, area near family after giving birth to a daughter in late 2020. But McCain had also previously mulled leaving the daytime talk show. CNN reported in the summer of 2019 that McCain, feeling dejected and sabotaged by her colleagues at ABC, was seriously thinking about departing the show. That was according to two people familiar with the matter at the time. One of the people, who was a friend of McCain's, told CNN that McCain didn't "think it's worth it anymore." A senior ABC employee who also spoke to CNN at the time also said McCain was "miserable" at the network. McCain's conflicts with her hosts have gone viral on social media, generating numerous headlines in tabloids over the years. In early 2020, former co-host Abby Huntsman left "The View" amid complaints about a troubled culture at the show and, in part, due to tension between her and McCain. McCain specifically mentioned Huntsman and their friendship Thursday. As she announced her own departure, McCain took issue with the press' coverage of the show, saying that the co-hosts are covered with "deep misogyny." McCain joined "The View" in 2017, replacing Jedediah Bila as the conservative voice on the program and quickly becoming a lightning rod. In addition to McCain, "The View" was co-hosted this season by Behar, Sara Haines, Sunny Hostin and Whoopi Goldberg. In a statement, ABC News praised McCain, saying she had "brought her fierce determination and vast political knowledge and experience" to the show. "She recently came to us with her decision to depart the show at the end of this season, a difficult choice that she made for her and her family that we respect and understand," the statement addd. "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."

Are they going to be able to find another ignorant blond to spout GOP conspiracy theories?  I suppose they could get someone from FoxNews to fit that spot.

The rest of the idiots would not have a chance against Candace Owens.

She'll chew them up and spit them out the first episode and they all will demand she be thrown off the show because their "feeeeeeewwwwiiiiiiiiinnnngs" would be hurt.

Boo Hoo!

Good riddance. She always wanted to make the whole show about her by endlessly arguing with others on the show, speaking endlessly over others until Whoopie finally has to shut her down. This had gone on for years now and it is time she was shown the door. She was likely given the choice to either leave on her own and save face, or be fired, at which point people would want to know why and her face would not be seen well.

Now maybe that show can be the kind of show it should be. Talking about the important issues and not just one person hogging the camera.

The times I watched she had an annoying way of interrupting her cohosts with narcissistic babble about herself. Her angle on every subject was how it related to her. She is insufferable...

I dont watch the View much, but over the course of years I have certainly seen it enough and seen clips of it enough to know what it is like. 

Meghan McCain is a minor league television personality at best.  Without her name she wouldnt get within a hundred miles of a national television show. 

Her biggest mistake was to off and on back Trump and his supporters. Sometimes she was against Trump sometimes she was with him.  It's chicken shit. 

She is well known enough now to start her own podcast or You Tube show, both of which can be dome from home.  Plus she is wealthy. No worries for Meghan McCain.

As a fat girl myself, that's funny. But I don't like to participate in fat shaming

They always had her sit sideways on the end.

Not her best angle. Her being so thick and all

I used to be a fat girl myself and I won't fat shame her, not when there is so much other stuff to shame her for.  Her father would be appalled that his daughter became a Trumpturd after the way Trump totally disrespected him for years.

Barbara Walters started a good talk show and then ABC let the loons take it over and turn into nothing but trash talk.  She would be horrified at what it has become.
