Oprah Show

The Oprah Show - A Goodbye to a Great Talk Show
By Lois Christine: Basic PLUS Degree in creative writing.
In the year 1986 a brand new talk show hit the airwaves in the fall. A woman brought to life a grand talk show that introduced celebrities, politicians, and many other news stories that the people wanted to hear. There was no guarantee that the show was going to make it but for almost twenty five years the show is still going strong.

Oprah Winfrey started the Oprah show that wonderful fall day in 1986 and has been going strong ever since. During her almost twenty five year run she has had shows of all sorts and guests of all sorts. There has been many laughs during her shows, some eyebrows raised during her shows and some tears shed during her show.

Oprah has had a broad variety of things covered in her show. From fashion and happy things to things like some of the tragic happenings overseas and to some of the terrible medical problems that face people today. Her show has been an informative tool that has helped many lose weight and get healthy.

Oprah has also helped many people to actually pick up a book and read. In the year 1996 Oprah started the Oprah's book club which takes a book and has its club members read it and then later review it most times on air. Oprah often discusses what happens each week and encourages viewers to read along with the book club or to go out and get the book afterwards. Oprah's book club has helped many people read many great books and she has also helped many of the books that she has picked out to go on and become best sellers.

With all the good that Oprah has done and as long as her show has been going on you might think that it could never end. However in late 2009, Oprah announced that she would be ending her hit talk show. The last day for her show will be September 9th 2011. Oprah is sure to throw a great Oprah finale. She will more than likely have guests from past shows for her Oprah finale as well as flashbacks from her twenty five year run as talk show host. There will be many tears and many laughs during the Oprah finale. It will be the end of an era of a great talk show with a great talk show host. Oprah Winfrey will be missed in many homes after 2011.
