It was just a few weeks ago that Barbara Walters "retired," making her high-profile exit from "The View," as we reported previously. But today we have word that the ABC News veteran is back.
Deadline.com reports: "Barbara Walters will interview Peter Rodger, the father of Santa Barbara shooting suspect Elliot Rodger, for an upcoming special edition of ABC’s '20/20.' News of the segment with Rodger, a second-unit director on 'The Hunger Games,' will air on an upcoming Special Edition of 20/20 and other ABC News platforms and comes less than a month after Walters appeared on her last episode of 'The View' after 17 years, ending her day-to-day journalism career."
Elliot Rodger killed six people and injured 13 before killing himself in a shooting spree May 23 near the campus of U.C. Santa Barbara.
