According to the folks at Page Six, “ABC chiefs are desperately trying to sign Raven-Symoné as a host of “The View” before their upfront presentation May 12 in New York. Sources say the former child star of “The Cosby Show,” Disney Channel actress and, more recently, “Empire” cast member was a hit when she guest-hosted the daytime show in March, alongside Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie Perez.”
So the question is could this really happen? In the eyes of a source at ABC, Symoné “was interesting and provocative.”
“Raven would be great as a regular host,” said the source.
Chatter about Symoné being eyed to be a regular co-host with “The View” comes as the show continues to finding its groove with the right group of hosts since the departure of Barbara Walters.
Do you think Symoné could be the shot in the arm that “The View” needs or could the show do better with who they want to fill that regular co-host spot?
