Barbara Walters to Retire in 2014

Barbara WaltersBarbara Walters will be retiring. The chat show veteran has decided to end her phenomenal TV career in 2014.

"I am very happy with my decision and look forward to a wonderful and special year ahead both on The View and with ABC News. I created The View and am delighted it will last beyond my leaving it. I do not want to appear on another program or climb another mountain. I want instead to sit on a sunny field and admire the very gifted women - and, OK, some men, too - who will be taking my place," she said in a statement.

The 83-year-old star - who will continue to serve as executive producer of The View - began her career in 1961 and has spent five decades at the forefront of television. She co-hosted NBC's morning news program, The Today Show, for 15 years before moving over to ABC to co-host the Evening News. Ben Sherwood, ABC News President, said, "There is only one Barbara Walters. We look forward to making her final year on television as remarkable, path-breaking and news-making as Barbara herself. We look forward to a year befitting her brilliant career filled with exclusive interviews, great adventures and indelible memories."

Wow I can’t believe Barbara Walter is retiring. She’s so steadfast and always dresses in <a href=“http://sastique.com/”>elegant style clothing</a>. She’s hilarious too!

I know many will miss her on the red carpet this year. It’s hard to image Worst Dressed on E! without her! Oh well, she’s had a great career and deserves the rest. I wish her the all the best.
