Besides nabbing her own chair at the cohost desk, the CNN contributor has also inked a multi-year deal as a permanent co-host — though she won’t appear every day on the show.

Despite both Navarro and Griffin being conservatives, their brands are vastly different. The former White House Director of Strategic Communications for Donald Trump served as special assistant to the controversial 45th president, as well as press secretary for former VP Mike Pence.

Meanwhile, the Miami born political strategist has tended to lean more left in her views, with her political affiliation often times being called into question on The View. Navarro has dubbed herself a "centrist" and has been highly outspoken about her refute of Trump policies.

The show's official Twitter account celebrated the announcements writing, "We are thrilled to welcome @Alyssafarah Griffin as a co-host of @TheView!" and, "We're excited to announce @ananavarro will be joining @TheView officially as a co-host!"

“If anyone had ever told me I would be sitting at a table with Whoopi Goldberg, I would have said, you are crazy,” Griffin said during Thursday's big announcement. “It is such an honor to be with you ladies every day on this set, and it’s particularly exciting for me today.”

“If there's one thing I believe, it’s that there’s more that unites this country than divides it, and I think that we can demonstrate at this table what our elected leaders often can't, which is disagreeing, but doing so respectively, doing so in a fact-based manner," she continued. "We don't need any of these, you know, conspiracies and lies that have taken over so much of the right."

Variety first reported on the announcement of Navarro and Griffin as cohosts.
