Celebrated US journalist Barbara Walters, as famous for blazing trails for women in TV news as she is for her political and celebrity interviews, officially announced Monday her retirement next year.
"In the summer of 2014, a year from now, I plan to retire from appearing on television at all," Walters, 83, announced on "The View," the late-morning talk show she co-hosts on ABC television.
"It has been an absolutely joyful, rewarding, challenging, fascinating and occasionally bumpy ride. I wouldn't change a thing," she said.
