Oprah’s Leaving the Daytime Talkshow!
Oprah Winfrey will announce today that her talk show will end in 2011 after its 25th season on the air, according to her production company.
“Fifteen years ago, I wrote in my journal that one day I would create a television network, as I always felt my show was just the beginning of what the future could hold” ~ Oprah Winfrey
“After much prayer and months of careful thought, I have decided that next season, season 25, will be the last season of The Oprah Winfrey Show,” the daytime queen said. “Over the next couple of days, you may hear a lot of speculation in the press about why I am making this decision now…and that will mostly be conjecture.
“So why walk away and make next season the last? Here is the real reason: I love this show,” Winfrey said. “This show has been my life. And I love it enough to know when it’s time to say good-bye. Twenty-five years feels right in my bones, and it feels right in my spirit. It’s the perfect number — the exact right time. So I hope that you will take this 18-month ride with me right through to the final show.” ~ Oprah Winfrey
