Oprah Joins 60 Minutes
If you look up the work inspiration in the dictionary, you will find a picture of Oprah Winfrey. Since early in her career she has been inspiring us that with hard work anything thing is possible. She even has her OWN(Oprah Winfrey Network) network that features the Tuesday hit show, The Haves & The Have Nots. Earlier today it was announced that Winfrey will be joining CBS 60 Minutes as a special contributor and I think this position is fitting. You should want advice from the queen of media.
The Daily New York Times reports,
“There is only one Oprah Winfrey,” Jeff Fager, the show’s executive producer, said in a statement on Tuesday, citing her reputation as a master interviewer. “She has achieved excellence in everything she has touched.”
The Daily New York Times went on to say,
During a quarter century as the host of “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” which ended in 2011, Ms. Winfrey, 63, was a ratings powerhouse, securing headline-grabbing exclusive interviews with everyone from Tom Cruise to Barack Obama.
“60 Minutes” has lost some of its most recognizable faces in recent years, including Bob Simon, who died in 2015, and Morley Safer, the show’s longest-serving reporter, who retired last May, a week before he died at 84. The program credits itself in part with Ms. Winfrey’s rise, following Mike Wallace’s 1986 interview with her.
Since ending her syndicated show, Ms. Winfrey has expanded her reputation as an entertainment industry multi-hyphenate.
In addition to overseeing her production company, Harpo, her magazine, “O The Oprah Magazine,” and her cable television channel, OWN, Ms. Winfrey has worked as an actor and writer. She is slated to appear in the forthcoming “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks” and the Disney film “A Wrinkle in Time,” directed by her frequent collaborator Ava DuVernay. (She has also said she was toying with making her Broadway debut.)
