Barbara-Walters

Longtime ABC news anchor Barbara Walters will announce her retirement today on The View, the show she co-created in 1997.

Good Morning America let the cat out of the bag this morning by revealing her plans.

Earlier this year, word leaked that Walters, 83, was planning to sign off by season’s end. A series of specials are set to air that will pay tribute to her long career in broadcast news.
