“We promised to take a little time to fill the seat, and in Alyssa we found the right match and a welcome addition to the show,” executive producer Brian Teta said in a statement. “Ready to share her unique political experience, she brings a strong conservative perspective while holding her own in tough debates with her co-hosts and guests on either side of the aisle.
“Ana left an indelible impression The view since she first came to our table,” Teta continued. “She’s a strong, independent thinker with adept insights, not to mention whip-smart and hilarious. We are delighted to officially welcome them as co-hosts.”

Bringing a conservative viewpoint to the conversation, she took on the role previously held by former co-hosts Meghan McCain (2017–21), Abby Huntsman (2018–20), Jedediah Bila (2016-17), and Elisabeth Hasselbeck ( 2003-13).

“I could not be more honored and excited to join the ladies of The view‘ Farah Griffin said Thursday. “The show paved the way for women to speak up on television. At a time when our country is so divided, often partisan, I am honored to represent the conservative perspective. I hope to emulate what our elected leaders too often lose: learn from others, respectfully disagree, and focus on finding real solutions for our country.”
Navarro, meanwhile, joined first The view as a contributor in season 19. Since season 22, she has appeared regularly as a guest co-host on the panel.
“The view is an institution and unparalleled platform for women from diverse backgrounds to share their opinions and insights,” said Navarro. “It’s been a long courtship, but we’re finally making it official. I love being on the show and I love living in Miami. I’m glad I can do both. Thanks to ABC News, The view family and our loyal viewers for their continued support.”
