Throwback Thursday- The Oprah Winfrey Show (1986-2011)

Every television or movie genre has it’s icon.

For the daytime talk show genre, the icon is Oprah Winfrey and The Oprah Winfrey Show (1986-2011). On the air for twenty five years, the show tackled a variety of topics. They ranged from an interview with a celebrity hawking their latest project to real world issues such as racism and religious diversity.

I rarely watched this program. However, when I watched it, I felt like I was in the room with a friend. The success of this show comes from Oprah herself. She is down to earth, respectful of her audience, respectful of her guests and understands that the viewer is hungry for more than the latest filler from Hollywood.

I recommend it.
