“There were many reports last week saying that I was retiring from ABC, and there was an assumption that I would be making an announcement today,” Walters said on a recent episode on “The View.” “Here I am, and I have no announcement to make. But I do want to say this: If and when I might have an announcement to make, I will do it in this program, I promise, and the paparazzi guys, you will be the last to know.”
Walters’ recent health issues threw fuel to the fire for these retirement rumors. Earlier this year, she suffered a head injury and was forced to take some time off. Shortly after, she got the chickenpox.
For now, at 83-years-old, Walters is still going strong.
