Los Angeles — ABC's The View will gather all 11 past and present co-hosts to salute Barbara Walters as she retires from daily television.

The network said Wednesday the first-ever reunion will air live on the May 15 episode of The View, the day before Walters says goodbye as series co-host.

Among those scheduled to appear are Meredith Vieira, Star Jones and Joy Behar. They will join current co-hosts Walters, Sherri Shepherd, Jenny McCarthy and Whoopi Goldberg.

The 84-year-old Walters announced in 2013 that she would be retiring this year from regular TV appearances.

She'll remain an executive producer with the New York-based The View and will make special ABC News appearances as events warrant, the network has said.
