All Hail the Queen: It's Oprah's Birthday
To celebrate, we're looking back at the media mogul's most memorable moments.
After nationally launching The Oprah Winfrey Show in 1986, the mega-mogul has continued to blow us away, year after year. Oprah’s show is the highest-rated program of its kind in history (no big deal), and has created its own genre of intimate confessional conversations.
Michael Jackson and Tom Cruise, who infamously jumped for joy over his relationship with Katie Holmeson her couch, Oprah has also created a name, and a world, beyond her television show.
The media proprietor owns her own production company (Harpo), co-founded Oxygen Media, created O, The Oprah Magazine in one of the most successful magazine launches in recent history, shares her opinions with her book club, which is the largest in the world, and has formed her own channel, OWN. To say she’s kind of a big deal is the understatement of the century.
So to celebrate the queen’s big day, we’re taking a look back at Oprah’s career timeline and her most memorable moments.
