Oprah To End Talk Show

Oprah Winfrey announced something yesterday that she has been saying she will do for years; leave her talk show.

Oprah will make the official announcement today on her show, which is the last show of the year.  Oprah will be announcing that the last show will be on September 9th, 2011.  The date is important as it will be 25 years since Oprah started doing the show.

Earlier this week, some stations were saying they were not going to re-up the Oprah show as the fee that is charged by her Harpo production company is just too much for them to handle.

She is laying the ground for Dr. Oz to take over her time slot with stations.  Oprah has done a lot for TV and some say even swayed votes for Obama when he was running against Hillary Clinton for the Democratic ticket.

I wonder what Ellen thinks of this news?-Dr.FB
