Truth rating: 10

By Michael Lewittes



Barbara Walters was honored by a slew of top female journalists during her last day of shooting “The View.”


Gossip Cop has exclusively learned that at the end of the show, which taped on Thursday, but will air on Friday, Oprah introduced a clip honoring Walters for being a trailblazer who paved the way for female journalists.

As Oprah read the names of the highly respected women in media who feel indebted to Walters, the ladies came out one by one to surprise the legendary TV anchor.

Diane Sawyer, Katie Couric, Connie Chung, Kathie Lee Gifford, Hoda Kotb and Robin Roberts are just a few of the big names who stopped by to honor the broadcaster.

A production source tells us Walters was “completely overwhelmed.”

As Gossip Cop reported, Walters will remain the executive producer of “The View” after her on-air exit.
