Barbara Walters retired today ... maybe ... after five decades in broadcast journalism. She made her final appearance on The View, which featured women in broadcast journalism who have been inspired by Barbara's dedication and work. Oprah led the parade of women to not only say goodbye, but to say "thank you" for paving the way. I loved it when Oprah picked up the microphone and took over as she introduced the women. It was like she was in control of the whole event and it was so cool. We salute you Barbara - and the other ladies - great job!
Tonight Barbara was interviewed on a TV special honoring her life and work. She talked about being balancing job and personal life, which wasn't easy. Working moms have to make sacrifices, especially those married to their work. Highlights on the TV show also included keynote interviews with celebrities and political leaders. Barbara goes and out with lots of love and light.
In my own way, I feel part of their world having hosted:
