The Dancing With The Stars judge has reportedly closed the deal, and will come aboard in January. CBS has not yet commented on the reported new hire.
Carrie Ann has been one of the many guest hosts who have filled the position since Julie left the show in September following the sexual assault allegations against her husband, former CBS CEO Leslie Moonves.
The current panel consists of Eve, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne and Sheryl Underwood.
