Raven-Symoné named co-host of 'The View'
More change on The View: Raven-Symoné has been named co-host of the ABC daytime show.
The former star of Disney Channel’s That’s So Ravenhas already filled in as guest host of The View 37 times, taking over the vacancy left by Rosie O’Donnell. Effective immediately, she will join moderator Whoopi Goldberg and co-hosts Nicolle Wallace and Rosie Perez.
She appeared on the show Wednesday for the announcement.
“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!”
