Oprah Winfrey - Are you a Fan?

The DJs this morning talked about Oprah Winfrey. What? You don't know who Oprah is? Anyway, listeners were asked whether they are fans of Oprah, why and why not. I managed to catch a few callers and all of them (including a man), said they are fans of Oprah.

Except from Wikipedia:

Oprah Gail Winfrey (born January 29, 1954), often referred to simply as Oprah, is an American television host, media mogul, and philanthropist. Her internationally-syndicated talk show, The Oprah Winfrey Show, has earned her multiple Emmy Awards and is the highest-rated talk show in the history of television.

She is also an influential book critic, an Academy Award-nominated actress, and a magazine publisher. She has been ranked the richest African American of the 20th century, the most philanthropic African American of all time, and the world's only black billionaire for three straight years. She is also, according to some assessments, the most influential woman in the world.

I know that audiences to her shows were given great gifts, one time, even a car each.

Back to where we started.... So, do you watch her show and do you consider yourself a fan of Oprah?


  1. actually ive not watched her full show before... but did see snippets. i think ladies will like it more(?). but i like her for her rags-to-riches.. and now influential person she is.

    she is rather inspiring :)

  2. I only watch if I happen to channel-stumble onto it and that too if the topics or guests are interesting. But I applaud her for her philanthropy.
