Barbara WaltersIt’s official! Barbara Walters will be retiring in 2014.

After weeks long speculation, the television personality made the announcement Monday morning on ‘The View’.

She stated, “Let me just say I have been on television continuously for over 50 years. But in the summer of ’14 I plan to retire from appearing on television at all. … I’m perfectly healthy. This is my decision. This is what I want to do.”

“I am very happy with my decision,” the 83 year old continued, “and look forward to a wonderful and special year ahead.”

She also added, “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.”

But Walters won’t be completely done with television. She’ll continue to anchor for the ABC News.
