CHICAGO - It's what made her rich, famous and, if not a kingmaker, then perhaps the maker of a U.S. president.
Now Oprah Winfrey has decided she's ready to move on from her top-rated daytime program.
Winfrey plans to tell viewers on Friday's show that she will retire the Chicago-based syndicated gabfest at the end of her current contract, which runs through the 2010-11 season, her 25th on national TV. It's going to be a long goodbye.
I know a lot of people here at CAF are going to be broken-hearted about this news. ;)
