Conservative author and commentator Meghan McCain announced on Friday that she would leave her regular post at Fox News. McCain has appeared on the network for much of the last decade, and has been a permanent panelist of Fox News’ “Outnumbered,” since 2016.

“I’m so thankful to for the chance to be on but I’m leaving to focus on other things, I have no doubt the show will – continue to do well and wish all my friends and colleagues at the network nothing but success,” McCain wrote in a statement on Twitter.

Fox confirmed McCain’s departure in their own statement.

Famous friends of McCain wished her well on social media, as she readies for her next venture.
