Rumors have been swirling that Barbara Walters is getting ready to retire next year, but “The View” host says she hasn’t made any such plans.

“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.
