Oprah Winfrey

TV Star/Entrepreneur/Philanthropist

Oprah Winfrey overcame the greatest of odds to create an unstoppable media empire. Over the past 25 years she has entertained and motivated millions with ABC’s The Oprah Winfrey Show. She’s also helped launch the careers of several of her expert guests. Not satisfied with just her TV show, O Magazine and Harpo Radio on Sirius/XM, this trailblazing mogul launched her OWN network in January 2011. “An education is something that can’t be taken away from you,” she’s often said, and in 2007 Winfrey put her money where her mouth is by opening the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa.
