According to ABC News, the legendary broadcaster died on Friday, December 30. Barbara Walters was more than just a television personality. She was a trailblazer, a pioneer, and a role model for countless women in the media industry.

Barbara, who was born in Boston, Massachusetts in 1929, began her career in the media profession in the 1950s as a writer and researcher at NBC News. She swiftly ascended through the ranks, eventually becoming a producer, reporter, and anchor. As co-host of NBC’s “Today” show in the 1960s and 1970s, she became a household name for her knowledgeable and insightful interviews with high-profile personalities. Some of the big names she interviewed include, Fidel Castro, Donald Trump, Fred Astaire, and Michael Jackson.
