Whoopi Goldberg Joins 'The View'

It’s official — Whoopi Goldberg will replace Rosie O’Donnell and join the ladies on The ViewBarbara Walters, Joy Behar and Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

“I’m really glad to be doing The View,” Whoopi said in a statement. “It’s a show I like with people I like, and I’m looking forward to it.”

“We are thrilled,” Babs said on today’s show. “She is creative, she is funny, she is an enormous talent.”

Whoopi officially joins The View the day after Labor Day, Sept. 4.

UPDATE: Sherri Shepherd wasn’t announced as a host because, as always, money negotiations didn’t work out. “They just couldn’t work out the money part of it,” an insider tells In Touch. “They weren’t willing to pay Sherri what she was asking for.” Sherri reportedly demanded at least $2 million, which insiders say is what Whoopi will receive for her first year on the air.

The View is also in talks with former CNN news anchor and syndicated radio host Jacque Reid.
