Barbara Walters Will Retire On May 16

April 8 -- 'The View' co-host Barbara Walters will mark her retirement on May 16 after fronting the TV show, and a two-hour special highlighting her career achievements will follow.

Barbara Walters' final appearance on 'The View' will be on May 16.

The US chat show veteran announced that she was going to end her phenomenal TV career last year and has now picked a retirement date which will mark the final time she fronts the all-female talk show that she created in 1997.

According to Entertainment Tonight, a two-hour TV special will air later that night which will pay tribute to her "life and career".

The 83-year-old star - who will continue to serve as executive producer of 'The View' - began her career in 1961 and has spent five decades at the forefront of television.

She co-hosted NBC's morning news programme, 'The Today Show', for 15 years before moving over to ABC to co-host the 'Evening News'.

She isn't the first time a long-time co-host has left 'The View', her retirement comes after Joy Behar announced she was leaving the show in March last year following 16 years, and Elisabeth Hasselbeck took a job at FOX News.
