Since the 1970s, Barbara Walters has set television journalism milestones. She was the first female co-anchor of “ABC World News Tonight” in 1976. She also broke records by earning a $1 million salary each year, which was unprecedented then. Before launching her talk show, “The View,” she served as an anchor on “20/20” later in her career.
Walters has garnered multiple awards over her career. These accolades include Daytime Emmy Awards and Primetime Emmy Awards. To say she is a respected journalist would be an understatement.
