Oprah Winfrey is best known, perhaps, for her unique, compelling style
and personal revelations as talk show host of The Oprah Winfrey Show, seen by 21 million viewers a week, in 105 countries. A shrewd and responsible businesswoman, Oprah has parlayed her initial success in television into numerous other ventures, including the creation of her own production company which now owns and produces her talk show.
Oprah is the multiple Emmy-winning host of the highest rated talk show in television history, an influential book critic, an Oscar nominated actress, and a best-selling magazine publisher. According to Forbes rich lists, she was the richest African-American of the 20th century and the world's only black billionaire by 2004.
