Raven-Symone’s run on the informative show ‘The View‘ has been polarising to say the least.
Praised for offering a fresh perspective to its conversations while criticised by those who have noticed how little she knows/offers about/to political debates, Symone has now learned that her time on the show may be coming to an end.

Whoopi has told those close to her she will exit the show,” said one daytime TV veteran, who spoke with TheWrap on the condition of anonymity.
Whether she really means it or could be persuaded to stay remains to be seen. Goldberg, 60, is in talks with ABC about extending her contract, which is up at the end of this season. Making noise about leaving is a time-honored tactic used to increase bargaining leverage.
The network bosses seem open to an agreement. “We want her back and are trying to make that happen,” said a source close to the show.
But change of one sort or another is likely coming to “The View” soon. Raven-Symone, who joined the panel last year, probably won’t be returning, one insider said.
Whoopi joined the series in 2007 to replace Rosie O’Donnell while Symone arrived in 2015.
If they are part ways with the successful show they’d follow in the footsteps of Rosie Perez, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Nicolle Wallace and Star Jones.
