From actors to Imagineers, the list is filled with prominent people. But some on that list have an impact that spreads much further than Disney…and sadly, one of those such people has passed away.

Legendary journalist and news anchor Barbara Walters passed away at age 93 on December 30th, 2022. Her list of accomplishments in the news world is long and distinguished, including becoming the first woman to co-host the Today show, the first female network news co-anchor, and the host and chief correspondent of 20/20.

She had interviewed every president and first lady since Richard Nixon, was the first American journalist to interview Vladimir Putin, and had the first interview with the president after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. She was inducted into the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Hall of Fame and received the ATAS Lifetime Achievement Award. And she even has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
