The View’s Sunny Hostin recently signed a multiyear and multimillion-dollar deal to continue co-hosting the popular ABC daytime talk show.
According to Variety, Hostin, a lawyer, author, and journalist will now sit on the TV panel for at least the next three years. Currently, the show is in its 25th season. Reports state that Hostin’s contract takes her through season 28.
Hostin will be rejoined next season by her current co-hosts, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, and Sara Haines. There are claims that Alyssa Farah Griffin, the former Director of Strategic Communications and Assistant to the President during the Donald Trump administration, will soon be named The View’s next conservative co-host. That seat was left vacant since Meghan McCain exited the show last year.
Hostin, who is half Puerto Rican and half Black, made her debut as a co-host on The View 2016. That year, she joined ABC News as a legal correspondent and analyst. Her new contract will allow her to make appearances on other ABC shows like Soul of a Nation, 20/20, Good Morning America, and Nightline.
Before she was a mainstay on ABC, Hostin made appearances on networks like Court TV, Fox News, and CNN. In 2019, she served as the host and executive producer of the documentary series Truth About Murder with Sunny Hostin on Investigation Discovery. She’s also released two books: her 2020 memoir I Am These Truths and last year’s novel Summer on the Bluffs, which she calls a “love letter to Black and Latina women.”
