Ana Navarro and Alyssa Farah Griffin join The View for Season 26.

The View is adding two new co-hosts: former Trump staffer Alyssa Farah Griffin, and longtime show collaborator Ana Navarro, who diversity has learned that she has signed a multi-year deal to be a permanent co-host, though she won’t be appearing on the show every day.

The announcement is expected to come on tonight’s episode of The View.

Both women are Republicans and will comment on the daytime talk show conservatively, although their political brands are very different despite their same party affiliations.

Navarro and Farah Griffin will join host Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin and Sara Haines, making for six co-hosts for Season 26.

Navarro — a fan favorite on “The View” who identifies as a Republican but is an outspoken critic of former President Donald Trump — has appeared as a weekly guest host on the show but never officially had a permanent spot at the Hot Topics table until now . Over the years, diversity has reported that she was in talks to join The View, but a full-time deal never materialized.

tell insiders diversity that while Navarro has signed a deal to become a permanent co-anchor, she will continue to comment on CNN, so she won’t be on The View every day, and a person familiar with Navarro’s negotiations is says she has signed a long-term deal with ABC. Daily Mail reports that Navarro will appear “a few days a week” and fly back and forth from Miami to New York.

diversity previously reported that Farah Griffin is expected to join The View, having auditioned as a guest host for the show for the past few months. When we reported that she was in final negotiations to join as a conservative co-host, multiple sources said Navarro was disappointed that she hadn’t been chosen for the permanent gig. Now it appears that arrangements have been made to include both women for the upcoming season.

Farah Griffin’s addition to The View could prove controversial on both sides. She worked for Trump but didn’t disown him until after the January 6 riot – when she began her television career.

Farah Griffin was press secretary for former Vice President Mike Pence from 2017 to 2019 and then became press secretary for the US Department of Defense before moving to the Trump White House in April 2020, where she helped direct the president’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic shape . She spent about eight months in her presidential capacity and resigned a month after his defeat by President Joe Biden. In late 2021, Farah Griffin joined CNN as a policy staffer, where she has spoken frequently about her time in the Trump White House. Since leaving the White House, she has condemned the former president, publicly denied his failure to accept the election results and blamed him for the uprising.

Farah Griffin’s father is conservative editor and author Joseph Farah, who founded the far-right website WorldNetDaily and is best known for his Clinton conspiracy theories surrounding the suicide of Vince Foster and then became known for encouraging labor pains during the Barack Obama presidency. During one of her appearances on The View, Farah Griffin said her father refused to attend her wedding after she spoke out against Trump because of “political differences.”

Navarro is well known to The View audiences, having appeared as a contributor on the show since 2013 before being named a weekly guest host in 2018. The Republican strategist has served in numerous Republican administrations, including serving as national co-chair of the Hispanic Advisory Council for John McCain in 2008 and Jon Hunstman Jr. in 2012. (Navarro shared the screen in “The View” with the daughters of McCain and Hunstman, Meghan McCain and Abby Hunstman, who previously served as co-hosts of the ABC talk show.)

The appointments of Navarro and Farah Griffin fill the conservative void left by McCain, who left the show in 2021 after the series saw a huge ratings surge during the Trump era with its heated debates with the other co-hosts. Before McCain, in 2003, Elisabeth Hasselbeck became the first Republican to switch television, arguing about the headlines of the day on daytime TV.

The two new co-moderators will be announced afterwards diversity reported that Hostin has signed a multi-year, multi-million dollar deal that will keep her on The View for the next three years. ABC had also previously inked long-term deals with Goldberg and Behar, both of which lasted through season 28, suggesting “The View” plans to keep many of its key co-hosts on the panel for the foreseeable future — specifically through the 2024 election , when ratings are likely to rise. Ana Navarro and Alyssa Farah Griffin join The View for Season 26.
