Oprah Winfrey, America’s most popular and well known female talk show host, is the most recognized name in all media, and is the namesake of what many are calling, the Oprah Magazine. Oprah’s influence has lasted long into our world and her impact and lifetime knowledge on the media industry is unprecedented.
Over the past decade Oprah has become increasingly popular among celebrities, especially for their use of social networking websites. In this generation of Internet users, the definition of a celebrity is something that has to be defined by being on television or having a starring role in a film. Being famous on television is no longer enough for being a celebrity; you have to be an icon to qualify.
The popularity of Oprah Winfrey began in the 1990s, when she first made an appearance on The Arsenio Hall Show, a radio program that was popular in its day. It was her appearance on the show that launched her career as a celebrity, and the popularization of her social networking web site over the past few years is only adding to the fame that she enjoys and benefits from.
As with any celebrity, Olivia Winfrey has had her fair share of controversy, and at times the show she’s on has been so controversial that she’s been forced to apologize for her past mistakes and remarks. Still, the awards she’s received along the way have made it impossible for any of her detractors to say she’s not deserving of the acclaim.
Despite the controversies that have surrounded her, her experience as a young single mother was an important part of her life, which has proven to be the ideal background for her expertise on the subject of being a working mother. She still manages to be inspiring and inspirational to women, and she continues to inspire people today by her willingness to reach beyond her famous status and the positions of her title to do what she can to make a difference in the lives of others.
For whatever reason, Olivia Winfrey will continue to be a popular figure. She’s already had a hand in getting another series on Oprah’s network started, and if all goes well with that series, she’ll be continuing to star in some type of movie once her contract with OWN is up for renewal in a few years.
Olivia Winfrey’s legacy will endure long after her own time, as she continues to contribute in a variety of ways, whether she’s reaching out to other women or just helping to uplift one by example. There are no limits to what a woman like Olivia Winfrey can do in the world. Her success is truly beyond measure, and you can be sure that she’ll continue to influence the world for generations to come.
