NEW YORK (AP) — Raven-Symone is now officially a co-host of “The View.”

After 37 appearances as guest co-host on the weekday talk show, she joins the panel alongside moderator Whoopi Goldberg and co-hosts Nicolle Wallace and Rosie Perez effective immediately. Her co-panelists made the announcement on Wednesday’s edition.

“I’m very happy to be sitting with these smart talented mentors,” she said, adding, “Guys! Let’s have some fun!”

Raven-Symone, 29, is widely known for her role in the comedy series “That’s So Raven” for Disney Channel along with “The Cosby Show” and “Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper.”

In 2012, she headlined the Broadway musical “Sister Act,” produced by Goldberg.

Recent credits include roles on the ABC comedy “black-ish” and on Fox’s drama “Empire” as well as the upcoming animated feature, “Animal Crackers.”

“Raven-Symone is a welcome addition to ‘The View,'” the program’s creator and executive producer, Barbara Walters, said in a statement. “She is happy, amusing and well informed, and has already brought a unique perspective to the program that has resonated with our audience.”

“The View” airs weekdays on ABC. It is in the final weeks of its 18th season.
