"I’m humbled and excited to have not one, but two dream jobs -- ‘Good Morning America’ and ‘The View’,” the 39-year-old mother of three told Good Morning America. “What I love about the ‘The View’ is that no topic is off the table and every viewer can feel like they have a voice on the show. I can’t wait to connect with the audience in a new way as I take a seat alongside this exceptional group of women.”

Joy Behar and Candace Cameron Bure also will join Whoopi Goldberg, Raven-Symoné and Michelle Collins as co-hosts of the talk show.

Faris earned a bachelor's degree in broadcasting from Cedarville.

She was named co-host of co-anchor of  "Good Morning America Weekend" in 2014. Before that, the Jackson, Mich., native was a "World News Now" anchor. 

True story: I annoyed everyone in my family growing up w my incessant questions and opinions. Finally, an outlet! I'm guest co-hosting The View Wed/Thur/Fri this week. Hope you can tune in! xo
