She may be the daughter of late senator John McCain, but Meghan McCain is impressive in her own right. Her career as an author, columnist and TV star has helped the View host accumulate a ton of money.
Meghan is worth about $10 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. The mom of one, who shares daughter Liberty Sage McCain Domenech with husband Ben Domenech, got her start in entertainment and politics at a young age. During her time studying art history at Columbia University in New York City, Meghan interned at Saturday Night Live and Newsweek.
Following her graduation from the ivy league college, Meghan gained a ton of attention when she launched her blog, McCain Blogette, in 2007. At the time, the former Fox News commentator shared glimpses inside her late father’s 2008 presidential campaign. While juggling her up-and-coming site, she also published her first book titled My Dad, John McCain in 2008.
Her success carried on as Meghan was hired as a contributing author for The Daily Beast in 2009. The following year, she detailed her life on the campaign trail with John, who died of glioblastoma in August 2018, in a 2010 book titled Dirty Sexy Politics, which later became a New York Times best-seller.
Around 2011, she picked up a new gig as a guest contributor for MSNBC. As she continued to pave a respected career in TV and politics, Meghan appeared on other shows including Pivot channel’s TakePart Live, Good Morning America, Outnumbered and much more.
Following her departure from Fox’s Outnumbered in 2017, the Arizona native was named as a permanent cohost of The View. Meghan made her debut on the ABC daytime talk show in October 2017 and kept viewers entertained with her witty remarks and conservative perspective ever since. She announced her permanent departure from the show on July 1, 2021. She pointed to her and Ben’s desire to stay in the Washington D.C. area to raise her daughter as the reason behind her exit.
While Meghan becomes more and more accomplished in her career as the years go on, she’s just as successful in her personal life. Meghan couldn’t be more grateful to have husband Ben by her side.
“My husband has been the most incredible [man],” the talk show host once gushed to conservative political commentator Ben Shapiro. “I hope every woman has the kind of husband I have. I say that as someone who dated every a–hole in West Hollywood possible before I met my husband.”
With all this experience under her belt, there’s no doubt Meghan has a bright future ahead.
