The former The Cosby Show star has appeared on the series as a guest-host 37 times since former co-host Rosie O’Donnell announced her departure from The View in early February after splitting from her wife.
“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,” creator and executive producer, Barbara Walters, said in an official statement released by ABC.

“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,” Raven-Symoné said of her new role.
“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… Let’s have some fun!” she added.
