Oprah Gail Winfrey (born January 29, 1954) is an American television host, producer, and philanthropist, best known for her self-titled, multi-award winning talk show, which has become the highest-rated program of its kind in history.[3] She has been ranked the richest African American of the 20th century[4] and beyond,[5] the greatest black philanthropist in American history,[6][7] and was once the world's only black billionaire.[8][9][10][11][12] She is also, according to some assessments, the most influential woman in the world.[13][14][15]
Winfrey was born into poverty in rural Mississippi to a teenage single mother and later raised in an inner-city Milwaukee neighborhood. She experienced considerable hardship during her childhood, including being raped at the age of nine and becoming pregnant at 14; her son died in infancy.[16] Sent to live with the man she calls her father, a barber in Tennessee, Winfrey landed a job in radio while still in high school and began co-anchoring the local evening news at the age of 19.[17] Her emotional ad-lib delivery eventually got her transferred to the daytime talk show arena, and after boosting a third-rated local Chicago talk show to first place,[9] she launched her own production company and became internationally syndicated.
Credited with creating a more intimate confessional form of media communication,[18] she is thought to have popularized and revolutionized[18][19][20][21] the tabloid talk show genre pioneered by Phil Donahue,[18] which a Yale study claims broke 20th century taboos and allowed LGBT people to enter the mainstream.[22][23] By the mid 1990s she had reinvented her show with a focus on literature, self-improvement, and spirituality. Though criticized for unleashing confession culture[21] and promoting controversial self-help fads, she is generally admired for overcoming adversity to become a benefactor to others.[24] In 2006 she became an early supporter of Barack Obama and one analysis estimates she delivered over a million votes in the close 2008 Democratic primary race,[25] an achievement for which the governor of Illinois considered offering her a seat in the U.S. senate.[26]
