Oprah Winfrey teared up while making the announcement that she’d be ending her show after 25 years on the air.
(CNN) — Oprah Winfrey will announce on Friday’s “The Oprah Winfrey Show” that she will end her talk show, said a spokesman for Winfrey’s Harpo Productions.
“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 will end on September 9, 2011, as its 25th season draws to a close, according to a letter from Harpo Inc. that President Tim Bennett addressed to partners and obtained by CNN affiliate WLS-TV.
What do you think? Is it time for Oprah to move on? If so, who is most likely to take her place in the afternoon talk slot?
