ABC’s daytime talk show “The View” has a new member of the hosting rotation, naming Republican strategist Ana Navarro as the show’s Friday guest co-host, Variety reports.
Navarro joins a Season 22 lineup consisting of regulars Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Meghan McCain, Sunny Hostin and Abby Huntsman. Goldberg, the moderator, takes Fridays off, opening up a spot for a sixth rotating cast member.
“According to sources, Navarro had been in talks to join ‘The View’ as a full-time co-host in the fall, but those negotiations fell apart due to salary demands,” Variety reports. “In addition to her latest job, Navarro will continue as a contributor on CNN, talking about politics. Although she identifies as a Republican, Navarro has been critical of President Donald Trump’s policies and she voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.”
