Barbara Walters signs-off

April 7, 2014 Barbara Walters, Robert A., The View

Barbara Walters exit from co-hosting The View was announced on Monday. There will be a special two hour show celebrating her long list of achievements throughout her career.

Barbara who also produced the show however, will continue to contribute to ABC news occasionally.

"She's a dear friend and colleague as well as someone I deeply admire, and it's impossible to fully convey her impact and influence on television. She broke barriers, defied convention, made history and set the standard for journalistic excellence for more than 50 years. It's hard to imagine television without her. “said Robert A Iger, the chairman of and chief executive of The Walt Disney Company.”

The esteemed journalist announced her retirement in May 2013. "I do not want to appear on another program or climb another mountain," Walters explained. "I want instead to sit on a sunny field and admire the very gifted women—and OK, some men, too—who will be taking my place."
