After a gazillion appearances as a guest host, ABC has finally hired Raven-Symoné as a full-time co-host!

The former That's So Raven star has co-hosted with Whoopi Goldberg and co. 37 times already, so we figure it's about darn time!
But Raven was far more gracious when she made the announcement on Wednesday. She said:
"The Disney Company has made another one of my dreams come true! 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.
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. I want to thank ABC, ABC News and The Disney Company for believing in me and my potential! Let's have some fun!"
With her sometimes controversial — but always strong — opinions, she'll make a great addition to The View crew.
