Farewell to the Oprah Winfrey Show

By Brooke Benjamin

After 25 years on the air, the final episode of the Oprah Winfrey show will air today. While the emotions are mixed, there’s no denying that the talk show host has had a profound impact on many. After the star-studded, 13,000 member audience extravaganza which was aired as a double-episode earlier this week there are whisperings that the final show to air today will take quite a different tone. Ms. Winfrey took to the stage alone this time around, although there were several celebrity friends in the audience none of them joined her on stage. Harpo Productions reported approximately 404 audience members were present. The show is set to air at 4 p.m EDT.
