    NEW YORK (AP) — Barbara Walters plans to retire next year, ending a television career that began more than a half century ago and made her a trailblazer in news and daytime TV.

    Someone who works closely with Walters said the plan is for her to retire in May 2014 after a series of special programs saluting her career. The person was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Thursday..............

    Her television career began in 1961 when she was hired as a writer for the "Today" show. She graduated quickly to on-air work and became the show's co-host before leaving in 1976 to become co-anchor of ABC's evening news with Harry Reasoner — the first woman in such a role for a television network.

    During the recent weekend of speculation about Joy Behar and Elisabeth Hasselback leaving or staying on The View, one article mentioned that Barbara Walters in 83!

    I should look so good when I'm 63. And be half as sharp.
