Barbara Walters to Announce Retirement?S

Barbara Walters is reportedly ready to close the curtain on her 52-year career in broadcasting with a retirement announcement. It's not that surprising, considering all the cast change-ups going on with The View. Oh and because she's 83 fucking years old.

Deadline is reporting that Walters is going to announce her retirement at the end of this season of The View, but we spoke to a source at ABC who told us that she will be retiring at the end of next season in 2014, with a series of specials and tributes honoring her trailblazing career.
