The 38th time was the charm for Raven-Symoné, who on Wednesday was officially, double-secretly named a cohost of ABC’s The View.

The former Cosby kid has been regularly guest-hosting on the daytime talker since early March.

“The Disney Company has made another one of my dreams come true! Being a part of The View’family will be a wonderful growing experience for me,” Raven-Symoné said in a statement. “I want to thank ABC, ABC News and The Disney Company for believing in me and my potential! Let’s have some fun!”

“Raven is smart, funny and genuine,” executive producer Bill Wolff noted. “She brings a fresh perspective on the hot topics of the day, and she’s a lively, welcome addition to our conversations and interviews.”

Leading up to her View run, Raven-Symone’s TV acting credits also included Hangin’ With Mr. Cooper, the eponymous That’s So Raven and Empire.
