Republican strategist and political commentator Ana Navarro has joined ABC’s The View as a weekly co-host for Season 22.
Her first official day on the job was the same day of the on-air announcement: Friday, November 2.
She had previously appeared on the show as guest host.
During its more than 20-year run on the air, “The View” had not done enough to include a regular Latina host on the show.
ABC hired Rosie Perez as their first full-time Latina co-host in 2015, but she lasted less than a year on the show.
Before that, the network previously invited only handful of mostly one-day Latina guest-hosts, including Alicia Menéndez, Ana Belaval and Nely Galán.
