It looks like Raven-Symoné ‘s cringe-worthy comments on racial identity have won her the affection of network executives. According to the New York Post, ABC chiefs are “desperately” trying to sign her on as a permanent host of their struggling Daytime talk show, The View.
Sources tell the Post that the former Disney Channel and “Cosby Show” star was “a hit” when she guest-hosted last month. Now, the network wants to sign her to the team, which also has Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie Perez, ahead of their May 12 upfronts.
Symoné’s been back in the spotlight of late with her unofficial “I’m Not Black” tour, as well as a thirty-second appearance on “Empire.” So the move to The View team would certainly be a step up for her.
“She was interesting and provocative,” an ABC source told the Post. “Raven would be great as a regular host.”
