Mon., 9:42am: Barbara Walters sets May 16 for exit

April 7, 2014
Tribune Chronicle

NEW YORK - Barbara Walters plans to make her final appearance on ``The View'' on May 16, part of a daylong retirement celebration that will include ABC News naming its New York headquarters after her.

Later that night, ABC will air a two-hour prime-time special on her career. Walters, who is 84, began in television in 1961 and became the medium's best-known interviewer. She announced last year that she will retire from regular TV appearances.

Walters will remain involved behind the scenes as an executive producer at ``The View,'' the daytime talk show she invented.

ABC said Monday that Walters will also be a lifelong member of the ABC News team, and will make special appearances as news warrants.
