Raven Symone in Talks to Become Permanent ‘The View’ Host
Raven Symone and Michelle Collins, who are already frequent guest co-hosts on “The View,” will reportedly be getting a more permanent position on the co-hosting panel.
Over the course of their guest co-hosting stint, ABC producers have developed a strong liking for both women and are currently planning to offer the two women a full time position alongside veteran “The View” host Whoopi Goldberg and newcomers Rosie Perez and Nicolle Wallace.
Though ABC has yet to officially confirm Raven and Michelle’sfull time position on the show, Whoopi recently alluded to the ladies’ more permanent position during a live on-air taping of “The View.”
"We love saying it, but Raven and Michelle will be back tomorrow," Whoopi said. "We're trying to make it permanent, so write in to everybody.”
And while ABC producers are impressed with both women, sources say that producers
are particularly fond of Symone who has shown great work ethic throughout the duration of her guest co-hosting stint.
Though Raven has created quite a stir among the African American community for her questionable comments she’s made as a guest co-host, it is easy to see why producers want her as a more permanent fixture.
She creates controversy which will in turn bring the show increased ratings and she’s part of the younger demographic that “The View” is currently trying to cater to.
Congrats in advance to both ladies!
