News of Goldberg's four-year deal comes after conservative co-host Meghan McCain stepped down from the show Aug. 6. In July, the 36-year-old daughter of late Sen. John McCain announced that she would be leaving The View after nearly four years.

Earlier this month, executive producer Brian Teta told PEOPLE that the show wasn't in any rush to fill McCain's seat.

"This is such an important seat for us to fill at the table so we're going to 'take a little time' to make sure we find the right fit," he said in a statement. "It goes back to Barbara Walters' original direction — different women with different views. It's essential that the audience can relate to different points of View at our table."
