Oprah Winfrey to End the Oprah Show on Sept. 9, 2011

Oprah Will Say Goodbye to Her Talk Show in 2011

If getting a chance to sit in on Oprah is something you've always wanted to do, you'd better start looking into tickets — the queen of daytime talk shows is closing up shop. Winfrey will announce on her show tomorrow that her last episode will air on Sept. 9, 2011. Harpo president Tim Bennett released a statement saying,

"Tomorrow, Oprah will announce live on The Oprah Winfrey Show that she has decided to end what is arguably one of the most popular, influential and enduring programs in television history. The sun will set on the Oprah show as its 25th season draws to a close on September 9, 2011."

Oprah's show has been on the air for as long as I can remember, and while I'm more of a sporadic watcher, it's hard to imagine the television industry without her favorite things and high-profile interviews with A-listers and beyond. What do you make of this news — will you miss Oprah or is it time for her to go?
