This is really sad to hear.

There is no doubt about how inspiring Barbara Walters is!
She's been a co-host on The View for 18 years, was the first woman anchor on a network news program, AND she's been on the air for FIVE decades!
Which is why her retirement is so bittersweet!
Which of course had to do with showing her just how influential she's been over the years with some incredibly familiar faces helping her as well!
Awww! Excuse us while we go grab some tissues to fight the tears!
Farewell, Barbara! You're one of a kind and will DEFINITELY be missed on TV!
