Oprah Winfrey American Medial Proprietor

Oprah was born on January 29th, 1954, in a small rural Mississippi town.
As a teen, she attended Nashville East High School.
Oprah had a very difficult childhood. She was molested at the young age of 14, which eventually led to the death of her son. At the age of 19, she took a radio job in her home town of Tennessee. When the time came, she then attended Tennessee State University.
In 1986, she created the highest rated television program of its kind, that lasted until 2011. Years after the show was created, she was named the "Queen of All Media".
Not only did she create her own talk show, she is also the chairwoman and CEO of Harpo Productions, which is an incorporated US based multimedia production company.
To conclude, she is also an actress, author, and a humongous donator, donating millions of dollars to The Angel Network, The Oprah Winfrey Foundation, and the Oprah Winfrey Operating Foundation.
Oprah Gail Winfrey is one of the few people that is able to say she created her own talk show, that has helped, and entertained millions of people throughout the entire world.
To date, Oprah's current net worth is a whopping 2.9 Billion US Dollars!
Lastly, I do not think there is more successful and courageous woman out there. She has done imaginable things, that other can only dream of. I believe her career as an entrepreneur has been one to look up to. It is hard to beat someone that has helped people worldwide when the show was on, and still continues to give back to her fans and followers. Although her show was her main attraction, she still made her mark on our country. When her times comes to an end, the world will be in sorrow, knowing that we have lost one of the greats.
