PHOENIX — Meghan McCain announced she would soon make her return to “The View,” more than a month after her father, U.S. Sen. John McCain, died after a yearlong battle with brain cancer.

McCain said in a tweet on Monday that she would return to the ABC talk show on Oct. 8.

“Thank you all for your patience and understanding,” she wrote in the tweet. “‘It’s not about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward.'”

McCain, 33, has been mostly out of the spotlight since her father died on Aug. 25 at the age of 81.

She delivered an emotional tribute at McCain’s memorial service at Washington National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. on Sept. 1.

“For the rest of my life, whenever I fall down, I get back up. Whenever I am hurt, I drive on. Whenever I am brought low, I rise,” she said.

“That is not because I am virtuous, strong, resilient, it is simply because my father, John McCain, was.”

Meghan McCain first joined “The View” in 2017 after leaving her post as co-host on the Fox News Channel talk show “Outnumbered.”

Her father joined her on the show nearly a year ago, months after he first announced that he was battling an aggressive form of brain cancer.

We want to hear from you.
