Oprah Winfrey does it all!
She’s a broadcaster, producer, an actress, a philanthropist, and now, she will become a special contributor to CBS’s 60 Minutes.
Jeff Fager, the executive producer announced on Tuesday (January 31st) that Oprah would be joining the team.
“There is only one Oprah Winfrey. She has achieved excellence in everything she has touched. Her body of work is extraordinary, including thousands of interviews with people from all walks of life, says Fager.” “She is a remarkable and talented woman with a level of integrity that sets her apart and makes her a perfect fit for 60 Minutes. I am thrilled that she will be bringing her unique and powerful voice to our broadcast.”
Winfrey mentions that she’s been a “big admirer” of 60 Minutes since her days as a young reporter.
“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.”
Congratulations Oprah, we can’t wait to see your great contribution on CBS’s 60 Minutes!
