It’s official. Former child actress Raven-Symoné (The Cosby Show, That’s So Raven) has joined The View as a full-time co-host. Every weekend at 11am, she’ll sit at the table with Whoopi Goldberg, Nicolle Wallace and Rosie Perez. Raven-Symoné was gracious in her acceptance statement: “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.”
The View creator and executive producer Barbara Walters said Raven-Symoné is a welcome addition. “She is is happy, amusing and well informed, and has already brought a unique perspective to the program that has resonated with our audience.” One chair on The View remains vacant.
