Wednesday Jan 30
From Vancouver George interviews Oprah Winfrey
Oprah born in impoverished Mississippi to a teenage single mother before creating an empire under her name. Her name was intended to be Orpah after a biblical character in the Book of Ruth, but it was misspelled on her birth certificate and Oprah stuck. She has overcome childhood rape and becoming pregnant at 14 only to lose her son in infancy. She landed a job in radio while still in high school and began co-anchoring the local evening news by the time she was 19. Although she began her career with a reputation for classy and intimate conversations with her subjects, she eventually revolutionized the tabloid talk show. Oprah is also no stranger to controversy and even her attempts to focus on literature, self-help and spirituality did not escape the critics. Her influence over the public didn't seem effected and her support for Obama delivered over a million votes in the 2008 Democratic primary race. George had the opportunity to interview Oprah last week in Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver. Watch tonight for an exclusive interview he had in Vancouver.
