It’s fairly unusual to find a celebrity that’s pretty much universally adored. Oprah, of course, is one such celeb.
So obviously we were beyond jazzed to hear that she just joined the team at 60 Minutes as a special contributor.
Anyone who’s followed her career knows that this isn’t exactly shocking: before becoming the Oprah we know and adore today, Winfrey started her career as a TV news reporter in Nashville. With this announcement, she joins the impressive ranks of past 60 Minutes contributors like Diane Sawyer, Walter Cronkite and Katie Couric.
No word yet on when her first episode will air (or what topics she’ll cover), but for now the news alone has us buzzing with anticipation.
