Barbara Walters Wants to Sit on ‘Sunny Field’

ABC Host of “The View” Barbara Walters is scheduled to announce on this morning’s program that she will retire next summer. She will remain executive producer of the show she created in 1997.

“I do not want to appear on another program or climb another mountain,” she said in a release from the network. “I want instead to sit on a sunny field and admire the very gifted women—and okay, some men too—who will be taking my place.”

“The View” airs at 11 a.m. ET on ABC.
