Meghan McCain gets own show on new TV networkPosted: Updated:
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) -- Meghan McCain is getting her own show on a new TV network targeting the generation of Americans known as millennials.
The 28-year-old author and blogger told the Television Critics Association on Friday that the show lets her "be crazy, be myself and talk about issues."
"I came to Pivot because I think there has to be some sort of middle ground between the Kardashians and C-SPAN," McCain said. "I want to give people information but not talk down to them. I am so excited. This is the best thing I've ever done."
McCain said her 76-year-old father, Republican Sen. John McCain, has already seen a highlight reel of her show.
"We have had conflicts many times. He did not love when I worked at MSNBC," she said. "He has really been a great champion of this show and believing that young people want more substance."
The younger McCain, who is also a Republican, calls her generation the most politically engaged.
"I believe in more than this country is being given in news and entertainment," she said.
