Barbara Walters Officially Announces Retirement!
No rumors, no whispers, it is official! After over 50 years of some of the best TV moments we've ever seen, Barbara Walters has announced her retirement. The media icon used her own talk show, The View, as her platform to deliver the news. And after a well-deserved, yet drawn out, pat on the back Babs finally got down to it. In the summer of 2014 Barbara will no longer be appearing on television. She said the decision was not due to any health reasons and that she's been thinking about doing it for a while.
