Listen to the podcast
Cherriipop110527-Oprah Finale by CherriiPOP

The biggest TV show on Earth – The Oprah Winfrey show has signed off after 25 years. A quarter of a century – A huge achievement in TV land. Her last 3 shows were broadcasted this week in the United states. In Australia, the show’s finale will be broadcasted this Friday 9pm on Channel 10.

The 3rd and 2nd last shows were a massive celebration for Oprah. Her high profile friends Tom Hanks, Tom Cruise, Halle Berry, Maria Shriver, Will and Jada Smith were all there to thank and honour Oprah for her extraordinary work. Fans from around the world sent messages and photos of them holding a big ‘O’ letter.

Her final show was an intimate gathering of her talking to her audience, close friends and viewers in her studio. She walked down memory lane with them and for the final curtain call, she chose not to say goodbye but, ‘Until we meet again’.

Oprah has greatly influenced the world. Inspiring people to live better lives, pursue dreams, confidence, self acceptance and compassion.

I have watched Oprah since the beginning of my memory. Over the years I have learnt a lot from her, learning what was happening in different parts of the world, learning compassion. She did not hold back on any issue, she was brave enough to explore it all.

I want to say, Thank you Oprah for all the wisdom, love and knowledge that we can all dream big. You’re awesome OPRAH!!!!!
