Former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany takes ‘Outnumbered’ co-hosting gig at Fox News

Fox News announced that former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany will be the new co-host of Fox News’ “Outnumbered,” according to the media outlet

Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott announced Tuesday that the former White House press officer would be joining their team:

“Kayleigh’s unique background in politics and law coupled with her experiences confronting women’s health challenges and life as a new mom will add robust insight to ‘Outnumbered’ — we are delighted to welcome her back to FOX News where she began her media career,” Scott Said according to Fox. 

McEnany will host alongside several other familiar faces, including “Outnumbered” founding anchor Harris Faulkner, co-host Emily Compagno, beginning on April 6. 

“I am thrilled to join the incredible women of ‘Outnumbered’ and look forward to working alongside the talented Harris Faulkner and Emily Compagno as we discuss the top issues impacting the country,” McEnany said.

McEnany isn’t entirely new to the Fox Family, thanks to her position as a contributor for the network which she has held for the past month.

Currently, “Outnumbered” has the highest rating of any cable news program in the 12 p.m. ET timeslot, according to Nielsen Media Research. McEnany has been focusing on the analysis of politics during her short tenure at the network, appearing on several of the network’s most popular programs. 

During her time as White House press secretary, the Harvard Law School grad became a conservative favorite for her way of keeping liberal reporters in check during adversarial press briefings. 

McEnany graduated from law school in 2016 and after obtaining a degree in international politics from Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Affairs and studied politics and international relations at Oxford University, St. Edmund Hall.
