ABC News journalist and “The View” co-host Barbara Walters will make an appearance on the daytime talk show July 12, ABC says. It will be her first appearance on the program since undergoing surgery to have a heart valve replaced in early May.
The surgery was successful, and Walters has been out and about, but until now, viewers of the daytime talker have only heard updates from the other women on the program, as well as an occasional phone call from Walters.
However, viewers will have to wait a little longer before Walters is back on set with Joy Behar, Sherri Shephard, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Whoopi Goldberg. For her July 12 appearance, Walters will only be appearing live via Skype.
Update: Walters will also be returning to her weekly radio show “Here’s Barbara” on Sirius-XM July 12.
