Whoopi To View

whoopi_072707.jpgMark it down: Whoopi Goldberg will be named the new co-host of The View, FishbowlNY has learned. Sources close to the decision say the announcement could come in a matter of days. The move has been rumored since Rosie‘s departure in May, while boldfaced names from Paris to Perez have been tossed around as possible replacements. Barbara Walters told FishbowlNY recently at Michael’s that a decision would be forthcoming: “We have to decide by the end of the month [July] because we’re off in August, so, soon.”

An ABC spokesperson tells FishbowlNY, “We adore Whoopi and enjoy having her as a guest host on the show, but no decisions have been made.”
