|Oprah Winfrey - TIFF 2009|
Today marks the end of an Era in Television as Oprah Winfrey’s final Show airs later today. The final Taping which took place yesterday was considerably modest compared to her Monday and Tuesday-aired episodes recorded at United Center in Chicago, which featured Celebrity Guests like Tom Cruise, Madonna and Stevie Wonder.
The focus of the final Episode is said to be between Winfrey and her Fans with one chair only on-stage and an audience including names like Tyler Perry, Cicely Tyson and soon-to-be-Divorée Maria Shriver. Fans leaving the Taping reported the experience as being emotional and the Cameras follow Winfrey about as she walks through the halls of Harpo Studios, bidding farewell to members of her staff.
Have some Kleenex ready! And remember, she’s not really gone. The Oprah Winfrey Network is still around!
