In "Audition," Walters shares the story of her life and 40-year career as a television journalist. Often referred to as "the first lady of broadcast journalism," Walters was the first female network news anchor and program co-host, the star of 20/20, creator of The View, and host of The Barbara Walters Specials.
"As a media celebrity certainly she's a legend," said Rakestraw owner Michael Barnard. "She's a major figure in American media history. She's a groundbreaking figure as a journalist."
