Oprah Winfrey will join 60 Minutes this fall in what will be the CBS News show's 50th season.
The media mogul, actress and longtime daytime talk show host will become a special contributor to the Sunday night news program. Winfrey worked with CBS recently on a TV special that aired last month in which then-First Lady Michelle Obama gave her last major interview to Winfrey.
“I’ve been a big admirer of 60 Minutes since my days as a young reporter,” said Winfrey in a statement. “I’m so excited and proud to join forces with this historic news program, which for me represents the bastion of journalistic storytelling. At a time when people are so divided, my intention is to bring relevant insight and perspective, to look at what separates us, and help facilitate real conversations between people from different backgrounds.”
