HomeTV20/20“Retired” Barbara Walters Returns to The View to Pimp New 20/20 Interview Jamey Giddens June 24, 2014 20/20, ABC Daytime, ABC News, Comings & Goings, News, The View, TV 1 Comment She’s b-a-a-a-a-a-ck! Remember all that daytime and primetime television hoopla surrounding Barbara Walters “retirement”? It looks like Babs is about as retired as Cher. This Friday, June 27, the veteran broadcast journalist returns to The View, this time as a guest. The segment will actually be taped on Wednesday. Walters will be promoting her 20/20 exclusive with Peter Rodger, father of Elliot Rodger, who killed six people, injured 13, and then killed himself near the University of California, Santa Barbara campus last month. Look for Walters’ newsmagazine interview with Rodger to air the same night on ABC. One Response aph1976 June 24, 2014 Yeah Barbara Walter retired but i think she also said she might do interviews and specials from time to tie.She’s just not working full-time anymore.Plus it could be interesting to see how she handles been a guest on The View.
