Raven-Symoné has made quite the impression – and caused quite a few controversies – as a guest co-host on The View, and now she will officially replace Rosie O’Donnell as the daytime talk show’s new co-host.
ABC announced this morning that Raven will have a permanent seat at The View table alongside Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie Perez and Nicolle Wallace.
Raven released the following statement:
“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. 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!”
