NAH! Not this LEGENDARY journalism icon!
BUT rumor has it Barbara has decided to retire from her prolific television career, and that her final TV appearance will be in May 2014!
The View host is supposedly set to make the announcement within the next few weeks.
We'll miss ya Babz!
We've grown up watching Barbara's probing, no-sass reporting techniques and the world of news correspondance (and daytime TV LOLz!) will be a little less vibrant without her in it!
Ch-ch-check out some recent snaps of Barbara (below)!
