After the announcement at the top of the hour, the new co-host, 29, proudly shared with the audience:

I remember coming to show with the Cheetah Girls when I was 15. I’m very happy to be sitting with these smart, talented mentors.”

After that she presented some tasty gifts – bacon and sweets for several of the panellists and potato chips and watermelon for Goldberg, 59.

Being a part of The View family will be a wonderful growing experience for me. The cast and crew are warm and welcoming and have 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.”

It’s been an unstable time for the 18-year-old show, which is finding strong ratings competition from CBS’s similarly structured “The Talk.” After seven years away, Rosie O’Donnell rejoined the cast last September, then abruptly left in February, Nicolle Wallace and Rosie Perez joined the show.

Former moderator Barbara Walters, who remains an executive producer on the show, added

Raven-Symoné is a welcome addition to The View. She is happy, amusing and well-informed, and has already brought a unique perspective to the program that has resonated with our audience.”
