The American broadcaster and pioneering TV interviewer, Barbara Walters, has died at the age of 93.

She made headlines in 1976 when she became the first woman to present a flagship evening news programme and was known for her high-profile interviews with world leaders and celebrities alike.

US entertainment journalist Sean Mandell says she became as famous as the people she interviewed:

"She was a household name in and of itself. A Barbara-Walters-interview became synonymous with a certain type of style: that it was celebrity, it was big, it was juicy, it had a little bit of tabloid edge to it".
