Oprah Sets Final Show Date
The time has come to an end for talk show queen Oprah Winfrey. After announcing in 2009 that she would no longer tape her highly-acclaimed talk show, the time is nearing for the last episode, which will air on May 25th, 2011. The show will continue to replay reruns of the show until September 9, 2011.
Oprah’s show began as AM Chicago before being picked up nationally on September 8, 1986. In those more than 24 years since the first Oprah Show aired, the talk show goddess has taped more than 5,000 episodes of the show, and earned herself the highest of honors and respect from people across the nation. She’s also the richest woman in the world if that helps describe the fame she has earned.
Oprah announced on Larry King Live she would not be renewing her contract when it came to an end this year. Winfrey does have plans in the works for a new talk show for her own network: OWN.
