TALK | Finally: Shepherd to ‘View’

In ABC, Daytime, The View on September 5, 2007 at 11:40 pm

After months of speculation, the AP reports that Sherri Shepherd is joining The View this season. Shepherd has been a regular in the guest host rotation over the last year or so, and this isn’t exactly a surprise, though Babs and Co. acted all cool about if or when they’d add a fifth full-time panelist.

Whoopi Goldberg, the show’s third moderator in as many seasons, began her tenure earlier this week.

Shepherd is essentially the permanent replacement for Star Jones, who left the show before Rosie came on board last summer and has since landed her own talk show on CourtTV. The announcement of Shepherd’s hiring is expected Monday. This will make the first full cast at The View since Jones’ departure in 2006.
