(Newser) – Looks like Barbara Walters is ready to call it quits after 50-plus years in the TV business. Deadline first reported that the 83-year-old was poised to announce that she would retire in May 2014, and everyone from Page Six to USA Today to the Huffington Post has confirmed the scoop with independent sources. What's unclear is whether Walters would maintain at least a partial presence at ABC, but she would definitely leave The View, along with Joy Behar and (probably) Elisabeth Hasselbeck.
