Oprah Winfrey has lined up an interview with President Barack Obama to air as one of the last episodes of “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” which is ending its run after 25 years in syndication, reports the Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker blog.
The interview, which will be taped April 27, is set to air May 2, the story says.
Winfrey endorsed Obama in 2007, when he was a senator running for president, marking the first time she had supported a presidential candidate. She campaigned for Obama throughout his campaign and appeared at his election night victory rally in Chicago, the story says.
She has not confirmed or denied reports that she will support him less publicly in the next election, the piece adds.
