Fond Farewell - The Oprah Winfrey Show: 1984 - 2011
Today marked the end of an era for American television. After 25 years, Oprah Winfrey ended her long-running, successful talk show, "The Oprah Winfrey Show." Although the show began as more of a "tabloid" talk series, she moved on to stories that touched the lives of more Americans by covering topics on health, relationships and self-improvement, just to name a few. She also interviewed celebrities on the charities they were involved with. The Oprah Winfrey Show remained the number one talk show in ratings since its debut in 1984. Oprah Winfrey now plans to spend more time on her new television network, OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network).
