About this Article

Barbara Walters said Monday that retirement from her epochal television career is near, but it's not happening right away. Walters, who began in television news as a "Today" girl in 1961, became the medium's best-known interviewer and invented a daytime talk show at an age many people would be going fishing, said on "The View" that she will step away from the camera next summer.
