The legendary broadcaster will appear on the show to discuss her exclusive interview with Peter Rodger, father of Elliot Rodger, who killed six people and injured 13, before taking his own life near the campus of University of California, Santa Barbara in May 2014. 

The interview will air on a Special Edition of “20/20,” Friday, June 27 on ABC.

Walters made the decision to leave her daily co-hosting duties on the show she helped create, after 17 seasons on May 16, 2014. However, she still has a large part of the talk show behind the scenes, where she still serves as one of the executive producers.

Catch Walters’  first return appearance to “The View” Friday, June 27 at 11 a.m. ET/PT on ABC.
