Is ‘The View‘ eyeing a replacement for co-host Raven-Symone? According to a Page Six source, absolutely. Reportedly, they’re trying to make a few changes to the format of the show and co-host line up. A source tells the outlet,
They’ve already been eyeing someone to replace her at the table, and she’s aware. She wants to focus on her acting again.
A rep for the show denies this rumor calling it
ridiculous. Ratings are up. We are very happy with the team we have. Raven is a great addition to the panel.
The View began August 11, 1997, as part of ABC’s daytime programming block. The show’s concept was conceived by Barbara Walters and Bill Geddie, and is executive produced by Candi Carter and Brian Teta.

The original panel consisted of Walters, moderator Meredith Vieira, Joy Behar, Star Jones, and Debbie Matenopoulos. In addition to Behar, the current panel consists of moderator Whoopi Goldberg, Raven-Symoné, Michelle Collins, Candace Cameron Bure, and Paula Faris.
