Barbara Walters has been hospitalized following a fall on a stair that occurred while she was a guest in the home of the British Ambassador on Saturday night. Walters cut her forehead in the fall according to the Huffington Post on Jan. 20.
ABC News' Jeffrey Schneider made the following statement regarding the accident:
"Out of an abundance of caution, she went to the hospital to have her cut tended to, have a full examination and remains there for observation. Barbara is alert (and telling everyone what to do), which we all take as a very positive sign."
Walters, the 83 year old news correspondent and co-anchor of “The View” was scheduled to participate in the ABC News' coverage of President Obama’s second inauguration. Due to the accident, she will not be on air as expected.
Walters is a broadcast journalist, author, and television personality who has hosted morning talk shows including ‘Today’ and ‘The View’ as well hosting the popular investigative news show “20/20.” She is known for her own style of “personality journalism” and for scooping the rest of the news industry when it comes to celebrity news. Her career has spanned from 1961 to today and the journalist shows little sign of slowing down other than heart valve surgery ion 2010.
