Oprah is coming back to network television
You get a job at 60 Minutes! You get a job at 60 Minutes! You get a…okay, we’ll stop, but probably the only thing that makes us happier than Oprah coming back to TV would probably be a free car.
Winfrey—who left us all feeling just a little more alone in the world when she ended her long running talk show a few years back—just announced that she’ll be joining CBS’ flagship news magazine show, 60 Minutes, as a “special contributor”.
Oprah has, of course, been on TV in the intervening years (she has her own channel), but that was a cable situation, so we, the great cord cutting millennial masses, are excited that she’s returning to a place where we can stream her online.
Here’s what O has to say about it all:
“I’m so excited and proud to join forces with this historic news program, which for me represents the bastion of journalistic storytelling. At a time when people are so divided, my intention is to bring relevant insight and perspective, to look at what separates us, and help facilitate real conversations between people from different backgrounds.”
