Barbara Walters on Retirement Rumors: "I Have No Announcement To Make"


Barbara Walters says she has no announcement to make. The veteran television journalist appeared on The View to clear up allegations made by Deadline last week, which stated she would announce her retirement very shortly. Walters remarked:

There were many reports last week that I was retiring from ABC and there was an assumption that I would be making an announcement today. The paparazzi were outside my home today... however, here I am, and I have no announcement to make. But I do want to say this: that if and when I might have an announcement to make, I will do it on this program, I promise, and the paparazzi guys — you will be the last to know.
