Default Barbara Walters Joins Sirius

Whenever he sees Barbara Walters, George Clooney mentions how he's still paying for telling her in an interview that he was never going to marry again.

Future Clooney dates will have an opportunity to revisit that talk, and hundreds of other interviews Walters has conducted for ABC News specials over the past three decades, due to a deal announced Monday with Sirius Satellite Radio.

Sirius will air a weekly two-hour series, starting next year, that replays many of the interviews Walters has conducted since joining ABC in 1976. About four interviews will be featured in each program, with new introductions by Walters to place them into the context of the time.

"It is a wonderful way for them to be heard," Walters told The Associated Press. "So many of them are classics. It is everything from Lucille Ball and John Wayne and Bing Crosby and George Burns to Matthew McConaughey and Julia Roberts."

Separately, Walters will also conduct some call-in programs for Sirius.

Barbara Wa-Wa is joing SIRIUS?! No thanks.

What, are they going to start airing reruns of "The View" next?

Worst. Newswoman. Ever.

Why not someone like Connie Chung or Walter Cronkite instead? At least they don't pronounce their R's as W's...or try to get their interviewees to cry.

Please don't let this air on SIRIUS Stars!

Oh please! Barbara Walters can't even say Sirius. She's definitely no Oprah, but she may attract someone (I hope).

Wait a sec. I think there is at least one of her fans on SBS. He can't quite get it out but I think he taps his foot three times for BarBarWa and then speaks into the mic for the WaWa.

Yes I know, very lame. Wth, it's Monday.

I can't stop thinking of Gilda Radner as Barbara Walters since this was released today. "Heh-woah, I'm baba Wawa."

I thought this part was hilarious........

"No, the Sirius Satellite Radio (nasdaq: SIRI - news - people ) chief executive hasn't signed a Howard Stern knockoff--that's rival XM's claim to fame, with its Opie and Anthony show. Karmazin's newest celebrity hire is Barbara Walters"
Friday and Saturday nights, I'll probably be at:
