ABC News has begun preparation for Barbara Walters' retirement in 2014 with the first of several specials it will air in honor of the famed journalist's more than 50-year-long career.
ABC News announced on Friday that Walters would sit down with President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama in an exclusive interview next Friday. The episode is part of the network's year-long tribute to Walters and will feature memorable clips from her past interviews with each presidential couple since the Nixons.
The interview is set to air during an ABC News' "20/20" Thanksgiving special on November 29th at 10 p.m.
Walters' presence at the White House on Friday did not go unnoticed:
