Barbara Walters heading back to TV

Wednesday, June 11, 2014 - Updated: 6:56 AM

NEW YORK (AP) -- Barbara Walters' time away from television isn't lasting long.

The TV news icon said Tuesday that she will interview the father of Elliot Rodger, the California man who shot and killed six people and injured 13 others before turning the gun on himself last month. The interview with Peter Rodger will air as a prime-time special on ABC News in the next few weeks.

It was only last month that ABC honored Walters with a prime-time special and going-away party on "The View" when she stepped away from regular appearances on the daytime talk show she invented. She stressed at the time that she wouldn't be retiring, and would still be available for special projects at ABC News.

That came quickly, when Peter Rodger specifically requested to be interviewed by Walters, ABC News President James Goldston said on Tuesday. He called Walters while she was vacationing in Berlin, and she agreed to do it.

"She always said she'd be back for special projects," Goldston said. "I don't think we anticipated one so soon."
