Fan-favorite Haines returns to "The View" panel having been on the talk show in 2016-2018 for seasons 20-21. Most recently, Haines co-hosted ABC News' "GMA 3: Strahan, Sara & Keke." She has previously served as a correspondent for ABC News. Prior to joining ABC News in 2013, Haines was part of the fourth hour of NBC's "Today Show" from 2009-2013. In 2008, she began online reporting as host of TODAYshow.com's entertainment video blog, "Backstage Pass." Haines joined "Today" in 2002 as a production coordinator. Prior to joining NBC News, she was a member of NBC's Page Program. Haines graduated from Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts, where she received a Bachelor of Arts in government. She is a native of Newton, Iowa. She currently resides in New Jersey with her husband, Max, and three young children Alec, Sandra and Caleb.
"I grew up watching 'The View,' and what this show stands for - different women, different backgrounds and different points of view – just speaks to my soul," said Haines. "I feel like I caught a shooting star twice. To once again be a part of the dialogue where I can share, discuss and disagree alongside these powerful and strong women is a tremendous honor. I feel very lucky."
"Sara never stopped being a part of 'The View' family and we're so excited to once again have her warmth, humor and thoughtful viewpoint join the rest of our talented co-hosts on the panel," said executive producer Brian Teta.
In season 23, McCain shared the exciting news that she and husband Ben Domenech are expecting their first child. "The View" continued with live broadcasts as the co-hosts transitioned to their homes as a result of the pandemic, starting with Goldberg on March 18, 2020. As of April 1, 2020, all of the co-hosts appeared from their respective homes. Season 24 will premiere with the majority of the co-hosts appearing from home and Haines broadcasting from the show's NYC studio.
"'The View' is at the intersection of politics, the pandemic and the racial justice movement, and our hot topics reflect the national conversation which gives us a unique position in daytime" said senior executive producer Hilary Estey McLoughlin. "The election is our Super Bowl, and we're excited to have our insightful and fearless hosts voicing their opinions as they cover this consequential and historic moment."
