There’s a push to get a legendary ABC News journalist to help ring in the new year.
A petition on change.org suggests that Barbara Walters, who anchored “20/20” for 25 years would be the perfect fit to help welcome the year 2020.
The famous ball drop in Times Square is broadcast live on ABC, so some believe it’s only fitting to have Barbara deliver her famous line, “Good evening, I’m Barbara Walters and this is 20/20!” live at midnight.
Nearly 5,000 people have already signed the petition.
Of course, it would be up to Barbara to accept the invitation.
