Former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany has been chosen to be the next co-host of Fox News’ “Outnumbered,” Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott announced on Tuesday.
“Kayleigh’s unique background in politics and law coupled with her experiences confronting women’s health challenges and life as a new mom will add robust insight to ‘Outnumbered’ — we are delighted to welcome her back to FOX News where she began her media career,” Scott said.
McEnany will appear alongside “Outnumbered” founding anchor Harris Faulkner, co-host Emily Compagno, and different panelists starting on April 6.
“I am thrilled to join the incredible women of ‘Outnumbered’ and look forward to working alongside the talented Harris Faulkner and Emily Compagno as we discuss the top issues impacting the country,” McEnany said.
“Outnumbered” is currently the most-watched cable news program in its noon ET time slot, and it has nearly doubled its viewership since premiering in 2014.
Earlier this month, Faulkner revealed that McEnany was going to join the Fox News family during an interview on “The Faulkner Focus.”
Since joining Fox News, the former White House press secretary has provided political analysis across all platforms, regularly appearing on its most popular programs.
McEnany replaced Stephanie Grisham as White House press secretary during Trump’s time and became known for disputing liberal media narratives during her briefings.
McEnany graduated from Harvard in 2016 and got her TV start on CNN after finishing her internship at Fox News.
