Barbara Walters Announces Plans To Retire

Barbara Walters made it official by announcing that she is retiring on Monday edition of 'The View.'  The 83 year-old is ending a very succesful career as a journalist. Most of us grew up watching her on the 'Today' show and on ABC's '20/20,' and of course her numerous interview with so many legendary people.

"So here, it goes," she said introducing in a taped segment, reviewing her career, starting with the Today show in 1961, when she was an on-air reporter and writer. She stayed for 15 years, which was surprising, she said because "I wasn't beautiful like many of the women on the program before me, I had trouble pronouncing my R's, I still do." She said she got the category for women on TV changed from "Today girls" to "co-hosts."
