November 19, 2009

 

Oprah Winfrey will announce on Friday’s “The Oprah Winfrey Show” that she is ending the talk show after 23 years, a spokesman for Winfrey’s Harpo Productions said.

“Oprah will be ending her talk show,” Harpo spokesman Don Halcombe said Thursday. “She will be speaking about it on tomorrow’s live show.”

The show will air live from its Chicago, Illinois, studio at 9 a.m. CT (10 a.m. ET), he said.

The show has been the highest-rated talk show for 23 consecutive seasons, according to the Oprah.com site. It is seen by an estimated 42 million viewers a week in the United States and is broadcast to 145 countries
