Barbara Walters teared up when she made the announcement on ABC's The View that after 52-years on television she would be retiring come next summer. The 83-year-old says her decision was her own and is not the result of a sickness or desire to work with other networks—but that she simply wants to enjoy life while she is still in good health. Check out the video to see the announcement she made on the show she created 16 years ago.
