Barbara Walters started her career as a writer and segment producer of women’s interest topics on The Today Show in the early 1960s. A well-known broadcast journalist and television personality, she became the first female co-anchor of a network evening news show, with Harry Reasoner, on the ABC Evening News in 1976, continuing her legacy as a pioneer for women in television.

Walters also gained a high degree of respect for her work in interviewing every U.S President and First Lady ever since the time of former President Richard Nixon, closing her career with her final interview of then-Presidential candidate Donald Trump in 2015. She is also known to have interviewed current President Joe Biden before he was inaugurated as President. Having been married a total of four times, she would first marry business executive Robert Henry Katz. Their relationship was annulled after 11 months. Her second marriage was with theatrical producer Lee Guber, with whom she would share their adopted daughter Jacqueline Dena Guber.
