Beginning July 20, 2015, national media personality, New York Times best-selling author and political columnist Meghan McCain will debut as the host of America Now. Based in Los Angeles, the popular News/Talk program broadcasts live on weekdays from 3 - 6 p.m. PT/6 - 9 p.m. ET on more than 100 affiliates nationwide, and will also be available on iHeartRadio.com, the iHeartRadio mobile app, and AmericaNowRadio.com.
As the daughter of U.S. Senator John McCain, Meghan McCain was propelled into the national spotlight at an early age. During her father’s 2008 presidential campaign, she launched a blog, which gained a wide readership almost immediately and received multiple distinguished awards in politics. Her blog’s success then thrust her onto the national media scene as a columnist for The Daily Beast and an MSNBC contributor. A powerful role model for young women and Republicans alike, McCain has passionately discussed news and events across a variety of media.
From business and politics, to entertainment and social issues, America Now will welcome a variety of guests and experts, and feature McCain’s candid, passionate take on the latest local, national and global headlines. “I can’t wait to engage listeners across the country as we shine a spotlight on the stories and issues that affect us all,” stated McCain. “…Hosting America Now is an exciting opportunity to help drive the national conversation.”
