Walk of Fame CBS Announces Oprah Winfrey To Contribute To ’60 Minutes’ This Fall Published 2 years ago on Feb 3, 2017 By Jade Wilson CBS announced on Tuesday that Oprah Winfrey will contribute multiple stories to the upcoming season of CBS’s “60 Minutes”. The coming together of one of the world’s most famous women and one of the most widely respected newsmagazines on television made news instantly. Evan Agostini/Getty Images Winfrey, as mentioned in the statement put out by CBS, will be a ‘special contributor’ to 60 Minutes. What this means is that she is expected to have several stories in the coming season of the prestigious newsmagazine. The first of several stories is expected to air at some time in the fall. The finer details of the deal, including its length, have not been revealed yet and CBS has declined to comment on the same. The executive producer of the program, Jeff Fager has told CNN that he had enjoyed discussing this partnership with Winfrey and feels that she is full of ideas and energy and a great person overall.

However the historically popular and widely loved “60 Minutes” will provide her the ability to reach many times more viewers with one segment alone as this program is known to draw a mammoth, 10 to 20 million viewers per week. Oprah Winfrey said on Tuesday in a statement that she has always been a “big admirer” of the 60 Minutes program ever since she was a young reporter. She also mentioned that she was proud as well as excited at the same time to be a part of the legendary news program as she considers it the ‘bastion’ of the journalistic storytelling concept.

This according to her will help facilitate the real and important conversations among people from different backgrounds. The announcement was made on the show ‘CBS This Morning’ which is co-hosted by Winfrey’s friend Gayle King. King said on the show that he was “psyched” about the development and expected Winfrey to be equally excited. This was because of the fact that Oprah Winfrey is known to have said that although she did not miss the day-to-day of the Oprah Winfrey show but missed storytelling and in general, connecting with people. This is why King felt that this would be the “perfect marriage”. UP NEXT Jason Hoppy Arrested Over Harrasment of Ex-Wife Bethenny Frankel...
