After a week of speculation that she would be making a big announcement today regarding hanging up her body mic after a 52-year career in broadcasting, 83-year-old Barbara Walters returned from hiatus on The View to say, "Here I am and I have no announcement to make."

It was rumored last week that Babs would announce that she would be retiring at the end of the 2014 season of The View. And while she did not make any such announcement today, she did put out a teaser about "if and when [she] might have an announcement to make" she would do it on The View.
