Raven-Symoné is now the new co-host on ABC’s daytime talk show.
Moderator Whoopi Goldberg announced live on Wednesday’s show that Raven is permanently joining the cast. After 37 guest host appearances, the former Disney Channel star will be joining co-hosts Rosie Perez and Nicolle Wallace effective immediately.
“The Disney Company has made another one of my dreams come true! Being a part of ‘The View’ family will be a wonderful growing experience for me,” said Raven-Symoné. “The cast and crew are warm and welcoming and has made the transition into daytime talk easier. I have a lot to learn within this new arena, but being the apprentice of these spectacular women will only make me a better person and talk show host. I want to thank ABC, ABC News and The Disney Company for believing in me and my potential! Let’s have some fun!”
