CNN’s Ana Navarro Is Joining the Cast of The View

Things are always changing on daytime TV: shows get canceled, time slots get shifted and anchors come and go. But one of the biggest changes (at least this week) is the news that CNN analyst Ana Navarro will be joining the cast of The View… part-time, at least.

Navarro's new role was announced on the show's Friday episode. She will join current hosts Joy Behar, Meghan McCain, Sunny Hostin, and Abby Huntsman every Friday. (Moderator Whoopi Goldberg has Fridays off.) While Navarro had reportedly been in talks to join The View as a full-time host, Variety reported that those negotiations "fell apart due to salary demands."

Navarro has worked for various outlets over the years, including Telemundo and ABC News. However, she is best known for her role on CNN, where she has worked as a political strategist and commentator.

But Navarro isn't just a television personality. She served on the transition team for Florida governor Jeb Bush in 1998 and as the national co-chair of the Hispanic Advisory Council for John McCain in 2008 and Jon Huntsman Jr. in 2012, and she supported Bush's 2016 presidential campaign.

Many fans believe Navarro is a good match for the show. One Twitter user said this was "great news!"

Another Twitter user called Navarro "an excellent addition."

Yet another Twitter user couldn't contain their excitement, writing "YAY YAY YAY!!"
