Who is Oprah Winfrey ?
Oprah Winfrey is famous all over the world. Her story is heartening to most of us. She was born in Kosciusko, Mississippi, to teenage single mother. Later she was raised by her grandmother. At the age of nine, she was raped by her relatives. She became pregnant at 14; but her child died in infancy. After this incidence, she went to Nashville, Tennessee to live with her father. At the age of 17 years old she won Miss Black Tennessee beauty contest.
She has stated that she was molested during her childhood and early teens and became pregnant at 14; her son died in infancy.
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.
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, she launched her own production company and became internationally syndicated.
