TV news icon says goodbye this week

By Valerie Cavazos. CREATED May 10, 2014

TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) -- Get ready to see a lot of Barbara Walters this week! The television news icon has graced our television sets for more than 50 years. This week, Walters is stepping down. For the past 17 years she's co-hosted The View, ABC's talk show she created that's become an American morning staple. She's also known for her celebrity interviews and getting the stars to open up. She's interviewed screen legends like Katharine Hephurn, pop superstar Michael Jackson, world leaders like Fidel Castro and plenty of people at the center of the country's most notorious scandals, like Monica Lewinsky. Walters' last day is Friday.
