 She eventually worked her way up to become the program's first female co-host in 1974.

  It made headlines when ABC signed her in 1976 as the first female network news anchor, with an unprecedented $1 million annual salary.

  She was known for her tough, incisive questioning and her ability to draw out candid and revealing responses from her subjects.

 "I'm not afraid when I'm interviewing, I have no fear!'' Walters told to The Associated Press.
