It is anticipated that Winfrey will announce her future plans on that show as well.

CBS Television Distribution said in a statement, "We have the greatest respect for Oprah and wish her nothing but the best in her future endeavors. We know that anything she turns her hand to will be a great success. We look forward to working with her for the next several years, and hopefully afterwards as well."

  1. I was never a fan although I did watch occasionally if she had a celebrity on that I liked. 25 years is a long time! She sure did build quite an empire for herself in that time.
