Oprah Winfrey

Happy 60th birthday, Oprah Winfrey! Born in the rural town of Kosciusko, Mississippi, Oprah’s story is truly a rags to riches journey. She experienced considerable hardship and poverty growing up. While still in high school, she began working at a local radio station, and by the age of 19 was co-anchoring the local evening news. In 1986, she launched her own, widely popular talk show The Oprah Winfrey Show, which aired for 25 seasons. Along with her brief but highly acclaimed film work, Oprah is known as one of the most successful and influential entrepreneur’s in the world.
