McEnany said she was thrilled for the opportunity, posting about her new position on social media.
“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,” the former press secretary said, according to the release.
Faulkner and Compagno are joined by rotating panelists for the show, including one male guest — hence the “outnumbered” theme.
“Since joining FOX News Media as an on-air commentator earlier this month, McEnany has provided political analysis across all platforms, including appearances on FOX & Friends, America Reports and The Five, among others,” the press release continued. “Previously, she served as the White House Press Secretary, a role she took after working for President Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign as the National Press Secretary.”
During her time serving as press secretary under the Trump administration, McEnany was known for her calm handling of adversarial reporters during daily briefings.
“Before joining the Trump campaign, McEnany held the title of national spokesperson for the Republican National Committee,” the press release detailed. “She got her start in politics as an intern for former Rep. Adam Putnam (R-FL) and later, in the White House Office of Media Affairs during President George W. Bush’s administration.”
McEnany was congratulated for the promotion by her peers.
