Chen’s departure came a week after her husband, CBS Corp. boss Leslie Moonves, was ousted from the company due to sexual misconduct allegations.
In announcing her exit on-air, Chen appeared to endorse Inaba as her successor.
Inaba, who has served as guest host on “The Talk” for two seasons, joins hosts Sara Gilbert, Sheryl Underwood, Sharon Osbourne and Eve.
Inaba’s career in dance includes performing on Madonna’s “The Girlie Show World Tour.” She’s also an actress and singer.
