Meghan McCain announced she will be leaving ABC”s “The View” at the end of the season during Thursday morning’s episode.

“I am just going to rip the band-aid off,” McCain said. “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.’”
