Just three years later, she snagged her place as the co-host of 20/20. In 1997, she joined the extremely popular talk show The View.

Barbara Walters’ career in journalism spread across five decades. During that time she won a dozen Emmy Awards. With the exception of one, the other eleven awards were all awarded to her while she was with ABC News.

Unfortunately, ABC News’ very detailed report on the legendary icon’s death did not include any details surrounding her cause of death. Given her age, most of her fans and those who had the pleasure of working with her over the years suspect she may have passed due to natural causes related to her age.

During her time with ABC, Barbara Walters was remembered for some of the big names she interviewed including everyone from the Bay of Pigs with Fidel Castro to Israel’s Prime Minister Menachem Begin. She was recognized as a woman with a fire in her belly who wasn’t afraid to ask hard questions.

One of her favorite interview memories to tell people included the time she asked Vladimir Putin if he had ever actually ordered someone to be killed. On record, he told Barbara. “no.”

Rest in peace, Barbara Walters.
