Barbara Walters to Make Her Final Scheduled Television Appearance on Friday, May 16
She was the first woman ever to co-host a morning show and the first female co-anchor of a network evening newscast. She co-anchored one of the longest-running newsmagazines, was host and producer of countless top-rated primetime specials and is the creator and co-host of one of daytime’s most successful talk and entertainment programs. She has arguably interviewed more statesmen and stars than any other journalist in history, and her notable interviews and controversial reports have made some of the most memorable moments on television. She didn’t just report history, she made history. She is Barbara Walters. And now, after more than five decades entertaining and informing generations of Americans, Barbara Walters says goodbye to daily television on FRIDAY, MAY 16 with her final co-host appearance on “The View” and a two-hour ABC primetime special celebrating her incredible life, both on screen and off.
