Talk about a trailblazer.

"The View" host Barbara Walters, who announced her retirement from television last April, was visited Thursday by pretty much every female anchor and TV presenter there is during her official last day on the job.     

As the first female news anchor ever, Barbara paved the way for all of the photographed news and television professionals—including Oprah Winfrey, Robin Roberts, Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kotb, and Maria Shriver. To honor her groundbreaking career, ABC is renaming the ABC News building after her.

Check out some of the love Barbara Walters received on her official retirement day.
