"Barbara Walters passed away peacefully in her home surrounded by loved ones. She lived her life with no regrets," her representative Cindi Berger said in a statement to USA TODAY. "She was a trailblazer not only for female journalists, but for all women."
ABC News' David Muir paid tribute to Walters on-air, remembering her as an "extraordinary human being, journalist, pioneer, legend."
"We were all influenced by Barbara Walters," he said. "She broke barriers behind the scenes and she broke news on-camera. She got people to say things they never would've said to another journalist."
