Barbara Walters: Her Story

Barbara Walters: Her Story


Barbara Walters, a pioneer in broadcast journalism, said one regret she has when it comes to her personal life is not spending more time with her daughter, Jackie.

“I was so busy with a career. It’s the age-old problem,” Walters, 84, said in an interview that will air on the upcoming ABC News special, “Barbara Walters: Her Story.” “And, you know, on your deathbed, are you going to say, ‘I wish I spent more time in the office?’ No. You’ll say, ‘I wish I spent more time with my family,’ and I do feel that way. I wish I had spent more time with my Jackie.”

In an interview with her longtime business partner, Bill Geddie, Walters spoke candidly about how her award-winning career affected relationships, and how, despite suffering miscarriages, she still desperately wanted a child.

The two-hour ABC News special, “Barbara Walters: Her Story”, highlighting her life and career will air Friday at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.

Episode Info

Prev: 1x01 -- SPECIAL! (May/16/2014)


Back in the day - meaning when I started at ABC, which was in December, 1992 - there was a star-studded cast of TV journalists. Good journalists to be sure, all of them, but celebrities in their own right as well.

Peter Jennings, Diane Sawyer, Ted Koppel, Charlie Gibson, Sam Donaldson, Hugh Downs, Connie Chung, Howard Cosell, Joan Lunden. The big names at ABC back in the 1990s.

But the best known of them all was Barbara Walters. And she still is. So now we say bon voyage to our colleague. And it's a strange feeling, surreal really, because 'round here Barbara Walters is like the Eveready Bunny. She just keeps on going. Or at least we thought she would.
