Talk Show Revolutionary, Oprah Winfrey, is Awarded a Dubai Star.13 Jan 2020
Oprah Winfrey is an entirely self-made American media mogul, producer, actress, former talk show host and philanthropist. She came from very humble beginnings and recalls her family living on government welfare and her grandma fashioning overalls for her made from potato sacks. Her upbringing, paired with unmatched ambition, is what motivated Winfrey to work with the passion and diligence necessary to result in the epic empire she has built for herself today. After working as a radio host at her high school, Oprah found herself as co-anchor for local news at the age of 19. This job launched her into Chicago daytime talk show, The Oprah Winfrey Show, which gained an enormous following with her as host for 25 years. By 32, Winfrey was a millionaire. Today, she is believed to be one of the wealthiest African Americans in the 20th Century and frequently makes the Forbes World's Billionaires list.
