Oprah Gail Winfrey was born to unmarried teenage parents. She grew up with her maternal
grandmother on a small pig farm in Kosciusko, before moving to Milwaukee to live with her mother.
Her mother’s lack of supervision enabled several male relatives and friends to sexually abuse Winfrey,
causing her to run away on many occasions. At the age of fourteen, she gave birth to a premature
baby, who died shortly after birth. Winfrey, now faced with a threat of being sent to a children’s home,
moved to Nashville to live with her father and his wife, Zelma. Her father was to provide her with the
discipline that was lacking in her life. Her father, Vernon, placed much importance on education, which
resulted in Winfrey becoming an honours student at high school. During this time, she was voted Most
Popular Girl, joined her high school speech team, and placed second in the nation in dramatic
interpretation. She also won an oratory contest, which secured a full scholarship to Tennessee State
University. Winfrey also worked at a local radio station during her studies. After graduating, she
accepted a job offer from Nashville’s WLAC-TV and in so doing became the youngest news anchor at
the station. In 1976, she moved to Baltimore’s WJZ-TV to co-anchor the six o’clock news.
In January 1984, Winfrey moved to Chicago to host “A.M. Chicago” for WLS-TV. In less than a year,
the show expanded to one hour and was renamed The Oprah Winfrey Show. It entered national
syndication in 1986, becoming the highest-rated talk show in television history. In 1988, she
established Harpo Studios, a production facility in Chicago, making her the third woman in the
American entertainment industry (after Mary Pickford and Lucille Ball) to own her own studio. Oprah
made her acting debut in 1985, when she starred in Steven Spielberg’s ‘The Color Purple’. Her
performance in the film earned her an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress and nominations
for a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress. ‘The Oprah Winfrey’ show is still highly successful.
Winfrey has also written six books and produced the film of the novel ‘Beloved’. She has received
many awards for her broadcasting and humanitarian work. She is also known for her repeated
dramatic weight loss and gain. She followed this up with a number of television movie appearances
and voice roles for feature films, before returning to the big screen in 1998 opposite Danny Glover in
‘Beloved’ based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Toni Morrison. Directed by Jonathan Demme,
the film was produced by her studio Harpo Productions. Thanks to her immense influence, the mere
association with the global superstar has been deemed to have advantages, which led to the coining
of the phrase the “The Oprah Effect”. A mention of a product on her show helped to turn many no
names into brand names, with authors among those who benefitted through Oprah’s Book Club. She
tested the power of the Oprah Effect in politics when she endorsed US presidential candidate Barack
Obama in the 2008 presidential election, the first time she made such a move. Research by
economists at the University of Maryland revealed that the move delivered over one million votes to
‘The Oprah Winfrey’ show continued to be a success, allowing her to net high profile celebrities,
including the late Michael Jackson, whose rare prime-time interview became one of the most watched
events in American television history with a viewership of 36.5 million people. Known for her repeated
dramatic weight loss and gain, Oprah has received many awards for her broadcasting and
humanitarian work and her personal wealth was estimated by Forbes in September 2010 to be over
$2.7 billion. When The Oprah Winfrey Show ends on September 9, 2011, Oprah will still partake in the
rapidly shifting and converging media field through The Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN), which
launched on January 1, 2011. In her final season of her talk show, Oprah made ratings soar when she
revealed a family secret: she has a half-sister named Patricia. Oprah’s mother gave birth to a baby girl
in 1963. At the time, Oprah was 9 years old, and living with her father. Lee put the child up for
adoption because she believed that she wouldn’t be able to get off public assistance if she had
another child to care for. Patricia lived in a series of foster homes until she was 7 years old. Patricia
tried to connect with her birth mother through her adoption agency after she became an adult, but Lee
did not want to meet her. After doing some research, she approached a niece of Winfrey’s, and the
two had DNA tests done, which proved they were related.Winfrey only learned of her sister’s existence a few months before she made the decision to publicize
the knowledge. “It was one of the greatest surprises of my life,” Winfrey said on her show. Since 1992,
Winfrey has been engaged to Stedman Graham, a public relations executive. The couple lives in
Chicago, and Winfrey also has homes in Montecito, California, Rolling Prairie, Indiana, and Telluride,
