During a presentation on Saturday for television critics, cable network Pivot announced that it was expanding its relationship with Meghan McCain, the outspoken daughter of Senator John McCain.

Beginning in the spring, the best selling author and media personality will join the network's late night chat show "TakePart Live" as a permanent co-host, working alongside Jacob Soboroff.

"From the moment I started working with Pivot, I knew this was home. 'Raising McCain' was an unbelievable experience that gave me a platform to address issues important for my generation. Now I get to do it five nights a week! I am really excited to be a part of "TakePart Live" and grateful for all of the network's support," said McCain.

The show, which launched with Pivot on August 1, 2013, recently celebrated its 100th episode.

"Meghan has a tremendous following and continues to win audiences on Pivot and beyond and, simply put, we wanted more of her," said network president Evan Shapiro. "This new role gives her a format to have a continuing dialogue with our audience about what most affects them, and - together with Jacob - offer perspectives from their generation."

“TakePart Live” airs weeknights at midnight on Pivot.
